Holy crap you've got a lot of adds on your page. With Ad Blocker Plus, I don't even know those ads are supposed to be there. I can't imagine how slow these forums must be to load for you.

I think your new exchange student has been watching too many naughty videos on your computer and gotten it all full of adbots and viruses. Well, let's say it's the exchange student and not the son.

That's because you have an upgraded membership. I'm forwarding the annoying ad to Tom Stormcrowe so he can make it go away.

I don't begrudge sites from using advertisements to help pay for their hosting and whatnot, but the Oogieloves ad was the WORST.

The ads on this site are the worst. I was browsing the forums on my tablet last night and all three ads were telling me there were hot ladies waiting for me to chat with them.

Hmm, all I'm getting are an ad for commercial trash cans and geographic mapping software.
