Marci,

No problem with ads at all, but a little surprised that I also was unable to vote using Mozilla Firefox, the radio buttons were not there, only the results.
Not a problem at all, I opened with internet explorer and cast my vote..............

:ppio: :ppio:

kindest regards,

I use Firefox with Ad Block, so I am not seeing the ads. I had to open Explorer to see the ads and see what you were talking about. I'll keep using Firefox, so doesnt matter to me.

HI Scot: Thats cos we dont really care about your opinion ;roflmao: .... ( DUCK!) ....Seriously , have you tried refreshing the page? Dont know why they arent showing up
I see that Jeff is having trouble as well... but I have Firefox also and they were there for me...

They don't bother me at all. I say make google PAY YOU for them being there!


Well, the guys who run the forum site we're using are the ones that make the $ on it.. but hey, we're getting a good deal on unlimited space.. so I cant complain... Im just glad to have it available to us..

I've actually gone to a couple of the websites using the ads I saw. This day and age I say it's just one more thing that we learn to overlook and/or ignore.
It's not like you are rolling in dough because you started this forum so I say save your money and use it for gas to come see me!

Do you seriously want to get me and Neil Oakes in the same room together ? BAAAAAAAD things happen, man... BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAADDDDDDD things ;roflmao:
Its like that movie " Dumb and Dumber" ...only we're " Trouble and Troubler " :)

HI Arrilia,
Mary Lou mentioned this ad block through Firefox as well.. Can you tell us about it and maybe that is something that others can also sign up for..?

I can live with the ads. I manage to ignore them everywhere else.

Can't find a way to enter my op on the forum so will just reply. I don't mind the ads, I'm used to blanking on them. Most of the websites I visit have some form of advertising, but I seldom see any!

There should be a little circle after each option for the poll. CLicking in that circle will choose that option ... Then click SUBMIT to vote ..

Marci,

I don't see the voting buttons (i use firefox), but if you hadn't mentioned the ads, I would have tuned them out...so I guess I am a "what ads" kinda vote... :blonde:

Save some bucks leave 'em as is.

Provided that the advertisements remain as is, I can cope. However their excuse sounds lame.
The ideal would be for them to not be there at all.
My major concern is that this may just be the thin edge of the wedge.
Regards,
Breda Cash.

The ads don't bother me, never even noticed them until you mentioned it.
