Ad-farms and click-bait are fairly automatic, but it would be good if we didn't have advertising here from the NRDC urging us to 'Help Us Stop' Trump.

The message is bad enough, but the NRDC is worse. Revolving door with the EPA, and collusive sue-and-settle lawsuits to circumvent the rule-making process.

It would be good to not see their advertising here.

I agree with the OP. I understand too that ads, click bait etc. are the norm for revenue, and sponsors are critical for an enterprise this size to exist. I operate a small less than 20 member International forum just for regulars for nostalgia/friendship reasons since originator passed away. We would need ads too if we were to ever grow. But, I DO think some checks should be done if advertising used etc. I know one thing for me anyway, I cant seem to get away from (here/elsewhere) the damn Humana Dental Ins. ads...I need dentures and work and I checked into them...need to be payer on plan over a year to get help past cleaning, exam etc...2nd year before extraction, over 3rd for root canal etc.
etc. .....I guess just my problem, but I know I dont like em etc. ....and of course I know responses as to how to remedy it, so dont say it...lol

Install the Ghostery addon on your browser and you won't see those ads.

Another way to handle this is to find a way to get everyone to click on the NRDC ad, over and over again. That would drive revenue for this site and cost the NRDC a bunch of money. :biggrin5:

Edit: This link shows what the ad looks like.

I maybe should get that Ghostery. Got an add for Tops, following me around. Now what the heck do I need with a top? I don't care how nice a top it is. I don't care if it's pure gold! I need a stinking top, like I need another hole in my head.

Hey all

A good chunk of ads are based off your browsing history and your general geographic location. So depending on your area, or if you have been doing some research on the democrats, you may see these ads. We can certainly look at blocking certain ones that are not appropriate for the community, such as this anti-Trump ad. Thanks for posting the image - we will also need the link that it goes to. You should be able to 'right click' on the ad, and 'copy link location' then paste it here for us. We'll send it up to tech to take care of.
