How long before this thread gets moved to Foo...or perhaps "Forum Suggestions"?

'Buy' a red star...I see no ads. Or install an ad blocker.

The hot chick in yellow/pink bikini reminds me of someone, I just can't remember who.

i'm sure it will get moved and that's fine. also, i don't mind supporting the advertisers here... i just think that ad is trashy and out of place on this site.

Funny you mention this; I was just thinking that cnnsi.com with its advertisements for the swimsuit edition are borderline NSFW. Some of the ads here are close (the bikini one).

Nothing.

But Diva (or at least the term "Diva") definitely has alot to do prima donna roadies. And with adverts posted only in the roadie forum, their sales have tripled.

ads are fine in general, but bikini ads don't seem right for this forum. do they (diva) even make any sales via BF? doubt it. if she was on a bike, it'd make more sense.

so BF will charge you to take the ads away, or just make money with the ads there - either way, they (the admins) are happy and making dough. guess i can't blame them for that, what with all the load pcad puts on their servers with his 'me' posts..
