Russell:

WOW! I'm amazed! I was 100% convinced that it was a Cookie I had on here. Asian Script also! How the Heck do they get on here??!!

This will be interesting to see if anyone else is also getting them.

The Regular Ads don't bother me at all. With the exception of that "Announcement" thing at the top, in the Forums Page. It IS an Ad! NOT an "Announcement". In my Opinion Only it is Unethical at best.

Bull Droppings! This is the THIRD Time Today that I've been Signed Out while composing a Reply!

I'll be lucky if this even gets Posted!

EDIT: Well it got Posted, but I had to Sign back in to do this.

Sorry "RantingRich" but this topic has nothing to do with your suggestions. We're not trying to hide them. We're trying to figure out why they're there in the first place. They wouldn't touch the Site "Announcement" in any event.

One of these days I'll have a look at your "rantingrich" website .LOL…

But …. I had AD-AWARE and SPYBOT for a while and got rid of them both for various problems they had or created. I've been using Free Avast for 2 years now and couldn't be happier.

Thanks Anyway.

If you are MAC get MACSCAN and be done with it… is you are PC get AD-AWARE and SPYBOT and be done with it.

I clicked on Our "Announcement" to see what this guy had to offer. This is what I got in return.

The "Coupons" are all from "womensforum.com" a part of Escalate Media's Portfolio and a "Sort Of Cash Cow" for them.

To understand it all and the "Chain Of Command", you have to do a fair bit of research to figure it all out. I did that and I'll try and break it down as tight as possible. Actually I Think I have something on here that might do that. Needless to say and from what I've been seeing as "Solutions" including US paying a Membership Fee. NO!

Well. This went a lot further than I had intended. Maybe it will serve some purpose.

I'm going to Resize the above and see if it makes it more readable. The Site has Pre Determined "Amazon" Download Sizes.

Guess It's a little better.

I can see why this would raise a concern, Rick. That's weird. As for "advertising income is all important." Of course, how else do they make money off of a free site?

Charles.

"Of Course"? I think your missing the point. Of course.

" As for "advertising income is all important." Of course, how else do they make money off of a free site?"

That's more than Obvious isn't it? It's also not the point of this Posting.

It's Free for US to use. It's a very small part of their overall Holdings. Naturally they make Money from THEIR Advertisers, advertising on any of their sites. Some just pay a set Monthly Fee. $$$$'s

The point of that statement is that those 2 "Companies" specialize in Online Advertising Not Specifically Operating a Web Site, but generating as much Ad Income as possible from wherever they can.

As it says "Escalate manages a Leading Performance Driven affiliate Advertising Network …......... Escalate Media has a combined reach of over 25 Million Targeted Users making it a Leader in it's vertical (Advertising)

But! According to our " Terms Of Service", the Site is still Owned & Operated by Martin.

I have been using Adblock Plus on my laptop for a while now with IE. I only use the free version and it does what it says on the tin.

Rectangle Font Magenta Logo Brand


So my view of Lumberjocks looks like this:

Brown Product Rectangle Font Software


As you can see it is totally free of ads.
