    I'm used to the ads and I'm used to their being "targeted", but tonight they are ALL for the various congressional candidates of both parties running in my congressional district in tomorrow's primary. :roll: Full color, in-your-face political ads! It's bad enough that I get a couple mailed ads every day, but at least I can use those as template cardboard! :lol: I'll be back tomorrow after the primary is over. g'night all. :wink:

    I'm getting them too. Thought they weren't allowed?

    I don't have ads showing. But the one that I love is a chubby lady in black and white profile, and she magically looses weight to become a slim babe! Ya, like it's quick and easy. . .

    I am getting the political ads too. Texas gov, etc. On some posts there are for Chase bank. I ignore them most of the time unless I see the words, fabric or sale. LOL

    I haven't had any political ads. But then again I don't pay any attention to the ads on here, I mentally block them out.

    Is there a way to block them? My computer keeps acting up every so often when I am on this site, I thought it could be the ads.

    I don't get or don't see the ads other than a little banner after the last post. Perhaps you need to set your computer filters higher? At least that what I think they're called. Dh does all the computer settings here and I know he's got whatever it is that blocks popups set so that we don't get any. Except for that Sushi thing---That one I hate.

    I finally realized what you're talking about and yes, I do get them. I'd just always ignored them in the past.
    We may not like them and I'm not sure but I think they're what keeps this a free forum. Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't they paying for ad space so that Admin can keep pay for this site without charging us?

    I just sometimes get small quilt related ads at the bottom.
    I love Adblock too!! Wish I had had it when they had all those disgusting ads with jiggling bellies and yellow teeth. Email servers were the worst for those. Who the heck ever clicks on those??

    There are other ads, but they aren't supposed to be political.
