Tried it a few times just now and it went to some standard advertisers. Recycled the page immediately and it could be made to show the chat links on occasion.

I just logged in and out and in - and didn't see anything amiss except that this thread on the main boards substantially upped interest in chat.

To our membership:

AIR Forums doesn't have any control over the ads Google shows. It is possible to prevent URLs but that would become a full time job. It's just bad ad targeting by Google. Yes, they are in poor taste, a distraction and of unknown pedigree. The site owner and moderators are sorry that this has happened -- and we can only suggest not to click.

I welcome communication on this matter but there's just not a lot that can be done about it except offer a receptive ear. Thank you for your understanding.
