Advertising on this forum, is provided by Google under the Google Adsense scheme.

Sorry, I really hate them too.

To continue to provide this service - Free of charge to the users. We need to raise revenue , enough to pay for the costs associated with the service provision. The Advertising level that is currently in use, is providing that income.

Though It will not cover Upgrading the system or replacement of system hardware :-)

Having said that, you DO have control over the ads that you see - one of the great benefits of googles system -


Change the ads you see



  • At the top right of an ad, select Remove Remove and then Stop seeing this ad.
  • At the top right of an ad, select Remove Remove and then Report this ad.
  • You can also let me know about ads that are offensive or inappropriate and i can block them via my google control panel.
