Re: My Car is Stalking Me On Cruisers Forum

You really need to lose your cookies. BTW, I bought a Toyota RAV4, but am hounded by Honda ads for their CRV, which I had considered. BUT recently every CF page includes an ad for "Wide Format Printers" which I do not have or want, and, at least to the best of my knowledge, never even thought about. The people who do this are not quite as smart as they think, or they are better at sales and marketing than at spying.

I predict you will buy a wide format printer in the next month.

Re: My Car is Stalking Me On Cruisers Forum

Do you guys realize that for $15 a year you can enjoy CF without having a single ad cluttering up the pages?

Unless you're on an unlimited data plan, you will probably save more than that in internet costs over the year and if your bandwidth is limited, you will find that pages load a lot quicker too.

Stu,

I pay the extra each year and still get the adds.

What are the chances of this annoyance happening?
It depends. If its name is Herbie, the odds are pretty good!

I tried. The adds go away on the first click, then come back more and more as I click on CF topics. Now I've got two very annoying sponsor adds one for wheelchairs and the other for Rogain. Believe me, I've never clicked or searched on anything remotely close to those two.

I think I liked my old car more.

Your 08 is trying to date your 14. Maybe ?
