FYI, ScottW, it's a product made by Kellogg's and it's some sort of bar (like a granola bar maybe) that supposed to make you smart or not get senile or something like that.

This is the 4th thread started on this awful ad. There are a variety of workarounds most of them on "Is There a Way". It also tells you how to contact Kelloggs and complain.

I must be thick skinned. It takes a helluva lot more than that ad to annoy me. Matter of fact, if that ad were one of the most annoying things in my life, I wouldn't have it all that bad! Bailing out rich executives and the messes they create by greed is annoying. Iraqies not standing up for their own freedom is annoying. Picking up the tab for people who have the capacity but won't provide for themselves is annoying. Cleaning up other peoples messes is annoying. Goofly Ads, well they rank pretty low on my sensitivity meter.

Firefox plus AdBlock. I haven't seen any ads on the I'net for quite awhile. Can't imagine why everyone doesn't use this.

Not in the least. I was also not annoyed by Biker Girl or Armpit Girl.

Frankly I got bigger things in my life than some easily ignorable ad.

B---s--t

Would you like to turn off the ads?If you have an upgraded account you can opt out of seeing any ads on your screen. Click here to upgrade. If your account is not upgraded this field will not change anything.


I GUESS THIS HAS NO MEANING AT ALL? WHY DO I NEED TO USE A DIFFERENT BROWSER TO GET WHAT I (APPARENTLY) PAID FOR ALREADY?

Guess it's a big deal to a lot of us if there are four or more threads. Maybe a moderator can merge all of the threads for us. Mods?

P.s.

I really like the forums, don't get me wrong. BUT, I expect to get what I'm told I will get, and that is not the case with this issue. I can put a piece of duct tape across the top of my screen also, or just unplug my monitor...
I questioned the ad situation to the forum staff and got a pretty lame excuse, as far as I'm concerned:

"Not logging in to AIR exposes one to more ads. Joining in the first place (and only by signing in) will change the ad display but not eliminate it. That change is what you may have read about. There are a variety of programs you can put on your computer to removed all ads (eg, AdBlock Plus for Firefox browser)."

Nice try, but I'm still not satisfied.

You can use an AdBlock for Safari, or AdBlock for Firefox.

Here's what you can ad block that's on (or has been on) these forums:

Block ads/tracking

doubleclick.net
quantserve.com
extreme-dm.com
googleadservices.com
google-analytics.com
googlesyndication.com

Block double-underline text with pop-up ads

intellitxt.com
kontera.com

Block Boom banner ad

m1.2mdn.net/viewad

Block AirForums banner ads

socialknowledge.com

Block Airforums corner-peel ad
but not the advertised airstreams:


airstreamclassifieds/peel/

Block the large picture above classified ads
but not the advertised airstreams:


airforums.com/images/banner/airstream-300x250_homepage.gif

Block the above AND the classified ads

airstreamclassifieds (without the /peel/ on the end)

Hope this helps,

Enough so that people start complaining about the annoying threads about the annoying ads

Adblock works!

Yes....I just smile and flip him the bird..

[quote=62overlander;649103]... so if the owner needs the advertising money, doesn't blocking the ads kind of counteract the reasoning behind the ads?

I would be willing to pay a higher user fee to be commercial free.

IT SEEMS THAT YOU ALREADY DID!
