Google ad needs to be removed

  1. Sep 19, 2009 #1
    Anybody going to do anything about that ad about the 24 year old supposedly being able to make over $1500/wk with special good ad software and she supposedly been on these major news tv show that keeps flashing on the PF? Now I did major background checking and realized the google ad software is scam and they just want you to enter credit card information on their website, but a lot of people are naive and will get the wrong impression that this ad is factual

    noblegas, if you are referring to a google ad appearing here, please post the link. Otherwise, we have no idea what you are referring to.

    Anytime you see ads like that, that are crackpot or scams, report them (Feedback is usually a better place for a thread reporting them). Greg does clean up bad google ads, but needs to be told they are there to be able to do anything about them.

    Alternatively, if you're bothered with ads and if you're using Firefox, you can download the add-on "Noscript" among with "AdblockPlus" and you won't see any ad anymore.

    I didn't notice almost any difference with ads when I turned gold about a year ago, thanks to these programs.

    Should we interfere in Nature? Weaker animals have a larger chance to become food for predators; less intelligent people have a larger chance to become victims of scams.
