Religious Ads on Physics Forums?

    What gives?

    I never thought I'd see an ad for the Church of Jesus Christ and Latter Day Saints on Physics Forums!!!!

    Hmm. It is a bit odd, isn't it? Not sure how many takers they get here.

    Well, it's not considered a crackpot site. As long as they pay $$$ to advertise, it's all good!

    They may be scientists in that church. Every last member. But Our freedom here on PF is the freedom FROM religion. :approve:

    Ahhh yeah, you are right Lisab! Help me Tom Cruise! Use your witchcraft on me!



    It's google adsense, or so Ad Block Plus says to me. It will take key words from each thread, and will display whatever it deems appropriate for that site. Or at least that was how it was explained to me, because there are a lot of "date Muslim women now!" ads on a military forum I frequent.

    Since this already drifted into a religion discussion, the offending posts were deleted and I am locking the thread.

    All the ads are from google. I believe Greg can block certain ads as he has been doing with crackpot adverts. Unfortunately it usually has to be highlighted what sort of adverts are being put up before he can block them.
