For the gazillionth time, I have never ever gotten one ad, one video or even one pop-up. But, I use Mozilla and have adblock.

And stop surfing porn.

The ads have nothing to do with your surfing habits, if they did EVERY single poster wouldn't be bitching about the same exact ads.

That being said, AdBlocker Plus stops that shit cod.

And yes, t&a sells. If the point of a visual ad is to have people look at them, what better way than some eye candy. :) People need to get over the significance of the natural human form is all. Compared with other countries, we're far more limited in what we can show in ads. Cann google around for "european nudity in advertizing" for more info. Prolly against the rules to link examples. :) Irony!

Who the hell sees ads? AdBloc Plus. Install it and be free.
So, the answer to this members question is for everyone on this site to block adds from the people who sponsor us? Seems like a kind of counter-productive solution to the problem, don't you think?

I see a lot of this type of dismissive, 'just grow up and deal' snarkiness as of late here in A&F. Too bad a few of us old timers can't be just a tad bit more understanding of some of the issues that pop up here.

Luddly, I love ya, but that was totally uncalled for.

By the way, when I am waiting on a fare, I often use a computer at the public library. The half naked women adds are an embarrassment and no, there is no adblock at the library!

Maybe we could at least talk about toning down the adds, for Christ's sake?

Yes, I agree about the add-block. In your case I recommend it. Oh, I apologize for some of the comments from my constituents; I expect it from some of them, others I did not.

Good luck and I hope that you reconsider leaving.

Stop trying to hide your porn searches from your 'partner'. Oh and come out of the closet and admit you are gay.

Guys, there is NO FLAMING in this forum. If you don't know this four years in, you obviously don't really care.

Every browser I've ever used had a 'don't autoload images' option or something to that effect. If ya don't like ads, don't enable images.
