Adverts from Time Warner, NASCAR, et al

Some of you have sent PMs this morning regarding the adverts that have shown up in a variety of sections of the forum. An inquiry to the site's owners/administrators produced the following explanation:

"That's a company that we work with. It should only show up a couple of times, if that."

At least we know that we aren't looking at a spreading virus that will turn us all into zombies, much to Pilotsteve's chagrin. Onward and upward.
Pilotsteve likes this.

Not sure how long they hung on, exactly, but they all seem to be gone now.

Thank you for the information, Searcher. I noticed a bunch of ads through the General Discussion and PP subforums earlier today but they are indeed gone now. I was going to flag 'em for spam but someone beat me to it. Who knows how these things happen... there can only be one explanation:

There's ways around ads, via an add-on for popular browsers. It's called "ad Blocker" very ironically enough.

I've used it for 4+ years with Mozilla, and to a degree Chrome when i was experimenting with it. Works great, and doesn't load other bullcrap when you add it in.

That brings me to a question for Searcher Bill. Is this place "owned" by any groups that specialize in "forum ownership" such as Autoguide, or the like?

Unfortunately TB, these were posted as threads and Ad Blocker doesn't recognize them as such...but A+ on AB. It does a great job....except in this case...

The folks who own this forum also own a couple of others, at least, if I recall correctly. How many and what they are, I can't say with any certainty. Wasn't there an announcement here, a year or so ago, or longer, about the start of a shotgun forum? I seem to recall that somewhere along the line.

Wait, here it is ...

I know this thread is a year old but I'd rather have it the old way than with the appeals to teen boys ads they have now.

There's several forums I visit to varying degrees of frequency. Only two do I visit daily, multiple times, at that.

I can't recommend AdBlock enough. And if you're lucky enough (sarcasm knob turned to 11!) to be a member of an autoguide forum, expect ads all over the place, within individual threads even.

But not with adblock. Last I heard, there was even a version for mobile and android, though for me, I'd rather bang away at my keyboard when posting.
