I was browsing CF during a break in the football when I noticed this ad.... seriously. Itís somewhat sad that ads of this nature on this site.
And no, I havenít been looking at porn.

Re: Advertising on CF

This is Google guessing what you want to see rather than someone paying to advertise on CF directly.

Install add blocker and never see an advert again.

Nah, she's just going to make zucchini bread. You must have been browsing the "bread making" thread.

Re: Advertising on CF

Yeah I have an adblocker and Iím not sure why it didnít work. Some sites request you turn off your adblocker on their site, not sure if I did here but Iíll be reviewing that.

Ha ha CaptTom Youíre not far off, more like gardening websites searching for advice on growing zucchini.

@ paulajayne, nobody except myself and perhaps the NSA have access to my iPad

Re: Advertising on CF

Another adblock user here. I see no ads, ever.

I also run Ghostery, which blocks (and identifies) all the invisible background trackers and data scoopers running on a page. As I type this response I see Ghostery has blocked five separate trackers/snoopers. Most are of Google origin.
