Default advertising at the bottom of the forum

This sort of link should not be at the bottom of the forum on every single page
as this is contradictory to the rules and undermines the work the mods do to remove porn from the forum

oh yer and incase anyone was wondering the porn in the link isnt that good

This forum can't pay for itself.

A bunch of porn popped up the other day and I didn't know where it was from. I clicked on the one at the bottom (don't ask me why, I just wanted to see if there really was one) and it's the same one was the other day.

Now I know what happened lol.

Well if someone wants to pay me the money that the ads brings in I will remove it

Ofcourse I would like to remove it but it does help pay for the server at the end of the day
