    Earlier today I think I saw some ads in GD and S&D about "quantum pendant" and "zero point energy wand".
    I think these need investigating. I don't know if they're still there, since I logged in and can't see them now.

    Yes, but it's a cranky troll green, not a forest sprite green

    Do you recall which threads you were reading when you saw them?

    Quattron quad-color TV thread in S&D.

    Random thoughts in GD??



    EDIT: It seems often that no ads show up when I log out, but at other times I'll be able to see them.
    I just logged out and no ads came up.

    If you hover over them do you get the URL?

    I've tried changing Chrome's settings, and I've tried using IE, but none of the Google ads show up (including legitimate ones).
    The only difference I see right now when logged out is a blank space in the upper-right of the first post of a thread, where an ad normally is.

    I'm stumped as to why they appeared before, but not now.



    Its their plan to keep us from removing their ads! :mad:

    Remove the ads and you remove PF.

    I'm not saying to remove all the ads. :rofl:
     
  12. What are the average annual expenses for a site like PF?

    thousands
     
  14. thousands of dollars? :surprised

    just out of curiosity, where are they spent? upgrading servers etc?

    Firefox works!
    These are ads I saw at the top when viewing this thread. I haven't yet looked elsewhere.
    Am I the only one who can see these?

    I think I may seen one of the ads saying that. I must have corrected it when I typed my post. :tongue2:
