    ...that you use to register people...hope the rest of the site is more welcoming..I come to your forum disillusioned by everything political...long time Libertarian/Republican activist, former County Party Chairman (for both of those parties at one time or the other, not simultaneously)...I'll have a look around, if you don't mind...I have never lurked here, I belong to another forum and one of the members there is a member here...

    The ads are necessary to pay for the bandwidth due to freeloaders like me.

    If you choose to stay and feel that strongly about it, you should make a donation.

    Internet adverts in general are intrusive, and use YOUR resources to display them to you. They leech off of YOUR computer.

    This is why I use AdBlock on my Firefox browser, the sumbitches aren't paying ME to use MY resources, so fuck 'em! I never see any adverts, anywhere I go on the web.

    Is that why I get so many ads for internet porn?

    I keed, I keed.

    I use firefox too. I don't really have a problem with ads, so maybe I have mine on too.

    Adblock is not there in FF by default, you would have to add it as a extension, then subscribe to a filter. I use EasyListUSA.

    Yep.
    Between AB and SS I never see an ad, either.
