Astonishing new feature

Post by eucsgmrc » Mon Jan 09, 2012 11:51 pm

I logged in to this forum a few minutes ago, to post a message about Coleridge photos, and was distracted by the offers that appeared at the top of the Index page: Alexandra, Galina and Anna, all from Odessa, and Ekaterina, from Nikolaev, and a tender 18 years old, all claim to be eager to "chat" with me. Now, one of my grandparents did come from the Ukraine (emigrated at the age of about 3, in the 1890s), but that connection wasn't enough to give me confidence that I could meet the expectations of those delightful young ladies. Still, I'm grateful to the forum for giving me the opportunity.

And I did post a link to the photos in the appropriate place. The Coleridge A photos, that is.

As I post there's ebony singles available if you're interested.

Not sure why I've not noticed these before....

Is there any way of removing these ads? I thought I had opted out when my screen started offering an amazing range of men, but apparently not! I am unlikely to succumb to the temptation anyway! I am rather more concerned about the half dozen a day items which appear in my spam folder offering me huge savings on various casinos etc - has somebody registered how much time I waste playing Freecell? Of course, I delete them unopened but how long before I surrender to the lure of winning actual cash?!

I have just opted out on the google site, so will see if it is effective.
My provider places about 30 messages a day in the spam folder, which I just globally delete when I see them there. Never bother to read them, just hope there is nothing important slipped in.

I mostly use Firefox, with the "Adblock Plus" extension, and don't see any ads at all on the Forum. I just disabled it, and am now urged to "get ahead with a University of London MBA" at the top of the page, and something about wesite design at the bottom.

Does the fact that I normally block these ads mean that the forum is deprived of any income?

I can see you were affected by your spelling !!

I used to get advertisements for "Extensions" --- which I ignored, having a Greenhouse.
I wonder how the other sort would go down at a Planning Committe ? :lol:
