The ads on the site are the reason I purchased a paid membership: I don't see them any more...

It might also be you were not signed in ?? They are really bad if you're here as a "Guest". I hate the progressive insurance one where all of a sudden I hear a motorcycle and mumbling and I remember I don't have the speakers muted. Can't sign in fast enough !!

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

What browser are you using? I find AdBlock Plus and Privacy Badger take care of all the ads when used with Firefox and Google Chrome. Both free extensions

Work fascinates me.

i run abp on all my computers and use firefox on all of my computers. i used to keep it disabled for this forum, but the ads have gotten so bad lately i have had no choice but to keep abp on for this site, which i hate to do because it takes money away from the forum but im not risking damage to my pc

I also FF, AB+, etc. etc. Never see ads.

After joining SBF, then finding that this place is a valuable, interesting and fun resource I kicked the coin upstairs to become a lifetime member, because that's what's fair.

Now I never see ads *and* I can participate here knowing I've contributed something besides my various and occasional beer-fueled humor.


Personally I've always found it a bit embarrassing to turn up empty-handed.


@O.P. ... you know this lyric I think:

"We can share the women, we can share the wine,

we can share what we got of yours, 'cause we done shared all of mine"...

Keep on rollin'.
