No ads for me but then again I use Firefox with ******* plus and the Easylist subscription. Friends don't let friends use Internet Explorer.

If you are a paying member (Captain's Club, Admiral's Club) you don't get any of those ads.

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the content of "Ads by Google" generated by Google and not the host forum? And also I thought the forum had no control over that content. I know the banner ads are forum controlled but they aren't Ads by Google.

Exactly! Google's ads are sometimes strangely inappropriate.

Not sure why reelboating is advertising?? When I was there Wiley pretty much indicated he didn't want what makes a site popular??? There were a ton of posts when I was there until... Well its Wileys site and he can have his site run any way he wants or should I say he can have people not post anyway he wants.
