Ads on every page

Postby aviationwiz on Sun Jun 15, 2003 11:28 am

Could someone please get rid of the ads that are on every page. It is incredibly annoying to have to close them every time I go to these forums.

They show up on every single page, someone please get rid of them.

They help pay for this place. Get a good blocker or use Nortons and Spybot search and destroy or something similar and you'll lose most of them. Also turn off the Microsoft messenger and that will kill off some of the sliders and things.

Since I'm on Broadband I don't mind the ads.

I just delete all my cookies and my IE cache after every browsing session.

As long as it helps Ian pay the bills it's all good.

ZoneAlarm Pro works well at blocking the popups. It lets the banner ads through whick is ok.

Without these ads, this website and forum would be NOTHING.

The ads pay the bills. At least we're not selling your email addresses like other websites.

The pop behinds show up once every 12 hours. Your cookies might not be enabled if they show up more. The InVues are only present in the forums. They show up every 12 hours as well.

I don't mind the banner ads or the pop-up or pop-under ads. I just really hate the slider ads that show up.

I only block the pop up ones I do click on the banner ads to keep the forum alive on 1/10 of a cent at a time.

I do not use Ad Aware but I do run a program that does get rid of the ad stuff. I don't know what it's called.
