I haven't seen this ad myself, as the ads are blocked for me; but if that be the case (if it is, its your buisness), then try deleting your cookies.

I would definatly agree with that, and I though those who use CF might like to know that also for future reference lol so that they wont be posting their personal habbits publicly if they dont want them known, that and they keep getting mad at david about it, when it isnt his fault they are doing that. It is the user who is getting those type of ads browsing habbits.

Those ads, work through the cookies on your computer to find what you are interested in, and then display similar content to you. So every time someone posts a thread like this with porn on it and getting mad at david. I might stop and think before doing it. just thought i would let you know.

Just to add to that, and make what i mean more clear... When you make those posts... you are telling everyone on CF about your browsing habbits. for example... if your getting alot of porn ads... then yea.. do the math
HAHAHA, wow, thats rich

Does that sound about right as far as your browsing habbits go? If so then that would definatly indicate that it does use the cookies on your computer, in which case, i would have to say for those of you out there that are having the issues with porn, i would think twice before complaining about your porn problems here lol because you are doing nothing more than letting everyone here know what you do on your own time.

I dont really care. It gives us something to look at waiting for someone to post

Hahaha, but really, to keep the professionalism of the site, its a good idea to change the agency.

Text ads tend to make websites look neater, maybe you should consider that, David.
