Often, when I visit this site, I get the "Congratulations, You Won" banner in the spot is usually an ad of some type. It will then pop up again when I open a thread. So far it's only happening here. Isn't this usually a virus of some type?

It's an ad paid to the forum company. This is a free forum, so I can't kill the ads.

Is there some irony in AARP ads popping up in a carburetor forum? Marinate the jets and metering blocks in a 50-50 blend of Serutan and Geritol.

Well, tuner, we all seem to be old here. Maybe those are targeted ads.

I don't know what you guys are seeing, but I get all these hot girl ads on mine. Tough to look at...

Madison Avenue types are sharp. I guess they know the AARP crowd would make up the majority of a carburetor forum.

I get ads for life insurance and those "Death" policies. If you believe "They Know" what ads to pop up then I guess the undertaker lurks around the corner.
What do you mean "Hot Girls" are hard to look at? If you are afraid of going blind looking at them then just take your chances on one eye!! ;~)

Then he'd have to pay to see the girls. ;) On second thought, there's a couple threads here with a certain photo of a long legged package. Besides I'm with Tuner. Those ads ain't entirely free. There's always a price...

If you want to cut down on the snooping, 'no-script' is pretty effective. There is a learning curve and with certain sites its a pain. In most cases that's because those sites have lots of tracking going on. But at least you know what your doing if you decide to turn the no-script off. A partial way around the big search engine is to use an alternative like the one that rhymes with *uck *uck go___ and if your thinking its a bad four letter word its not. It quacks.
