    It's just ads. You can just click close and move forward. (Pretend they don't exist).

    To run the operations here it cost money.

    Unless they make a membership pass were you don't have to deal with ads you will just have to deal with it.

    Hi Matthew, I totally agree about a membership pass for those who can't stand the ads. I would live with them but since I have not signed out since they started, I have none...or my ad blocker plus rocks!

    I don't mind ads, really. It's just that the nature of the ad business is just so obnoxious on most websites. It's like walking down Bay Street in the Bahamas (Nassau).

    Lol @Nancy.

    I use safari, I see the ads all the time but just close them out. I don't feel like getting a different browser, the google chrome runs a lot of resources on a Mac.

    I have a concern that we could have some shopaholics (another addiction).

    I have not seen anymore “divination” Tarot Card adds.

    That’s good!

    However, there has been a couple of adds showing under-dressed women (lots of leg, arms, and too much chest right to the boarder of the spheres).

    Lol, I just mean that on some of the big business media outlet sites I get redirected to from news aggregators, like WSJ and NYP, etc., throw ads at you like straw market merchants hound you in the Caribbean tourist trap towns.

    I'm afraid the under-dressed women are going to be hard to cull nowadays, my friend. They go to church that way now, you know.

    Chrome is pretty invasive. I have it on my Linux laptop, but I only use it to break into my wife's business. [​IMG]

    Started up Brave web browser, turned off the ad blocker, and I can see them now.

    Not so bad, from what I can see. :cool:

    I try not to interfere with ads unless they actually inhibit usability. I don't feel right hindering businesses from generating revenue for their operational expenses. I feel convicted of theft.

    One of the ads displayed this weekend was "Epic Cheerleader Fails" click-bait, the leader being a photo of a young woman who evidently was not wearing a brassiere under her cheerleader's sweater on a cold, crisp fall afternoon. Not appropriate, I'd say. I didn't click.

    Now, the Amish click-bait actually turned out to be rather informative, though I was not shocked by #4 as promised by the teaser. False advertising?
