Both, including myself. It is good to laugh, but sometimes difficult! Jim

I for one, will confess to experiencing both types of amusement frequently.

Most of all however, I amuse myself. Right now, for example.

I think this is all about weight distribution.

I could use a personal wd hitch to hide my potbelly. Now that is amusing, at least to me. Jim

The OP was complaining about the ads. My point is more supporting members could reduce the need for the site to have so many ads.

If I knew how to take them off, and of course, received permission, they would be gone immediately.

I'm not talking about you. You are a supporting member. I find the ads annoying but but seem to be at an acceptable level so far. I could get on my soap box and talk about the full frontal assault advertising has intruded into almost all aspects of our lives, or some of the earlier ads here about Obamacare or gun rights. But like I said, it's tolerable now. I think here ads that are germane to the forum are fine but for a while they were drifting way off course becoming clearly political. I get enough of that crap from way too many sources. I come to learn, support, and enjoy the contributions of others.

Read again, it's about tires and tire pressures.

You're right. I was distracted by the shiny thing in the middle. The GYMs are the bomb.

No, you're both wrong...
It's about tow vehicles...

You are correct...Geo targeting, your searches are fished or cached and this site has space allotted by companies that look for you and find you and target ads according to your interest or recent searches...internet fact of life... You can always choose to ignore and move on...

It always amazes me that on so almost all threads there are so major posters that are NON-supporting members. Maybe if there more members who paid at least the minimum $20/yr, there could be less ads.
I would guess that almost everyone one who comes to this site saves a lot of money, time, and frustration from what they can learn here. That's worth way more than $20/yr to me.
To those of you with 2 thousand, 3 thousand, 4 thousand posts or more, why don't you support the site with a donation?
What incredible insight. I commend you on this realization.

Don't really care about the ads on here as I know that the money raised is put to good use in keeping things running here. I can't stand most advertising and I even gave up watching my beloved Simpsons since arriving on these shores; I had no idea that you could get so ads into a 22 minute TV show.
