Why the sudden appearance of ads?

Post by jock » Sun May 12, 2019 8:37 am

Have I missed something here? But on my pooter especially in the 'Newby' section, we have ads appearing instead of the poster's signature verbage. will this be the norm? ...I thought it was against Forum Rules to blatently advertise products.

Dunno what you mean Jock :confused:

I turned off my Ad Blocker and all that appeared were the same old ads belonging to EMG and flogging their camping and 4WD stuff.

Jock, How do you think they pay for the forum now, advertising.

True o.t......but, i gather that that discussion only relates to ads top and bottom of the page. The ads i'm getting are showing up at the tail of each poster....and at the expense of the posters signature blurb.

Anyway, looks like I'm the only one it's happening too.

What browser are you using?

Has anything been changed or updated recently on your poota?

That sounds a whole lot like your computer has caught a virus.... or maybe it's your Internet service provider. :o Either way, something is subverting that section of your computer's display & is putting the adverts in there instead! :(

As others have asked, is there anything on your computer, browser, or service provider that's been changed or updated lately? :?:
