I don’t see what you are trying to show. Ads show up based on browsing history I think and are not endorsed by the forum. I have seen on the intro page an ad for a commercial stem cell scam for example.
Installing adblocker and skipping the intro page by navigating directly to the forum has eliminated this annoyance
Yep. Unfortunately I do not think it is controllable by the forum. If you search you will see we consistently answer any queries about commercial stem cells by discouraging people from pursuing such. If I could stop it from showing up I would. I don’t like it any more than you do.
Yes the forum needs ads to keep going donations and subscribers help but it costs more to keep a website of this size going. Our archives are very big. That costs more I assure you the moderators are unpaid. The forum couldn’t continue without some income
Tim contact David and tell him what ad it is - I don't see any because I have an adblocker installed. But I cannot see what ad you are referring to, so tell him by typing out which it is and the site it directs to.
He can go into the google settings and block a specific ad.
The moderators only have a few privileges here, and are not web gurus, just volunteers who can do stuff with posts, not the back end.
David has all the god powers there he owns the site
Hope that helps answer it Tim. His user name is david.
