Default Ad's at the top..

Im all for the ad's but these ones are ridiculous. Botox? Weight Loss? Russian Dating? Free Iphones?

I Think it would be smarter to have Computer related ones to make it look more professional and i think you'd get more clicks.

It's whatever the advertising company chooses, I guess, but yeah, deceptive computer-related ones would probably work the best lol.

I like the unobstructive ads that are on TheBestCaseScenario. This one isn't bad, though (at 1680*1050, at least). I just wonder if dave could do better selling advertising space on his own.

What difference does it make as long as it helps cover the cost of operating this site? The money is green, no matter the advertisement.

Because he gets paid based upon how many people click on the ad.

This is a computer site,not a weight loss site.

Wow. Kidding or not, you sir are an ass.

I recall when Holysky was banned for an "insensitive post". I feel this falls under that exact same category, and I'll be talking to David about it.
