Hi guys,

Do you guys find the "Want to get ripped?" banner ads currently running on Geekzone on the right hand side of the forum threads a little uncomfortable, especially at work?  Hehe  :D

I know Freitasm has no particular control over the ads and the need to make money to keep this great site running.

People are starting to think I am viewing male you know what, haha...

Screenshots please? We do have control over ads. The Google Ads can be blocked by domain (and we do have lots blocked) but the ones on the right side are completely ours - so I am not sure which ad you are talking about.

Ah... TribalFusion. If you right-click can you copy the link and give me the URL for that? I can block it. Send me in a PM.

Cheers

I see. You are probably posting through a proxy. We don't run Tribal Fusion in New Zealand - and New Zealand users don't see any ads on bottom of pages.

I do check TF ads now and then - but only from a Canadian and US addresses. I guess outside those markets they use some low paying things...

If you let me know the link I will block it.

I have just PM-ed you Freitasm.

Yeah I am in Australia at present. Maybe the Aussies care more about a 6-pack than technology :P Kidding!

Hi Freitasm,

The ads about abs are still showing :( Maybe it is looking at me, wanting me to do some exercise!
