    I can think of one really cheap solution. Stop watching commercial TV. The content is paid for by the ads. Nothing is free.

    I believe Cyrus was referring to ads on PF.

    Yeah, I've seen the up-close teeth/braces ad too on another site where I can't control whether or not I see ads. A handful of ads seem to be everywhere these days. I'm glad I can control them here.

    I pay 4c per day for the privilege of not seeing ads and keeping our fearless leader Greg out of trouble.

    How come?! I never paid a penny, and I don't get these ads, not even for once :confused:

    Its amazing how the adds follow the threads. If I am in PF main, the ads are about physics tutoring. If I am in the aerospace forum, the ads are about airplanes. When I was in the cats vs dog thread, there was an Ad for cats!

    Cough up a few bucks, Cy! For the price of one drink in your airport-theme bar, you can be ad free for a year.

    Maybe we should start a thread for Cyrus. Only beautiful olive-skinned, brown-eyed, brunette females with NO piercings or tattoos would be allowed to post there.

    Never mind. Policing that would be tough. We'd probably get Jersey Shore posters, or cougars who are real fans of white patent-leather shoes. Messy, either way. :tongue:

    I'm going to fill up my signature with weight-loss keywords in hopes of skewing the Google ads in every thread that I post.
