    pop-up political ads

    ACKKKK as if the phone calls aren't bad enough, I have had to click to get rid of a pop up ad on here several times. Sorry I just might have to stay off until the election. No idea where she is but not in my state. *sigh* Sorry for the vent, just don't know how to get rid of it. Anyone else get this??

    I use an ad blocker so thankfully no political ad's here on the board. My mailbox is another story ... I don't ever remember receiving this much political JUNK mail. Last night the neighbor came out and got his mail and asked if we wanted his political garbage (joking). As it happens there were several bon-fires going on in the neighborhood and we strongly suspect that they were all full of political mailings!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    they try to block political ads. that one obviously "snuck" through.
    when you see a questionable ad it's best to send the report to info@quiltingboard.com

    include a screen-shot if you can, plus all the details about it you can remember.

    The only time we get political ads is when the locals are running. I have yet to receive any political mailings from any candidate running for national office.
