Re: Private Message!

Dan, are you referring to the link by your screen name in the top right corner? If it's not bold, you have no new messages. If this isn't what you're asking about, I have no idea. HTH.

Re: Private Message!

It almost got me to click it before I realized it was an ad. For those who haven't seen it, it is very large centered below the menu buttons and above the actual forum threads. Today that space is occupied by a progressive ad on my screen. kinda pisses me off that it is so much like the private message button on the top right.

Re: Private Message!

Stupid ads! I downloaded Adblocker Plus and that has made them all go away.

+1. Not sure why I waited so long to do that, but they are all gone now. I hate online ads, especially pop-ups...

+1 on ad blocker plus.
After several years of use, I just sent them a donation.

Re: Private Message!

So if everyone here was to use ad blocker would this site end up shutting down because of it not having positive revenue for the owners ?.

Adblocker is the only way to go... I was so happy to get rid of all the ads and the crap that Google pushes at me all day... I donated $25 to the developer.

Re: Private Message!

Thanks - I didn't realize that it was an ad and thought that I needed it for this site. The deception really does [email protected]#$ me off. You would think that the site would at least proof the ads that they are running. I had ad blocker but somehow it got deleted. Next step, add it back.

Hope everyone had a great holiday.... Dan

I guess we hadn't thought of that. I'm not sure if the ads bring revenue to the owners just by being posted or if we have to click on them. If they are there and I don't look at them, do they exist? If adblocker prevents them from being posted, do the admins know that they are blocked?
