Ads, Add ons and Additives

Cor, this new site has some added features the others lacked! The ads for a start. 'Hot Polish women on line,' eh?  How will we keep the guys interested in books? Rolling Eyes Is that sparing enough as an observation? I could expand on the theme.

I don't see even one add...fix your host file and you will never see another add online again!

I certainly haven't seen the one about hot Polish girls!  I am always vaguely impressed that a lot of the ads seem vaguely bookish.  They are certainly neither as appalling nor as intrusive as the MSN ones.

What is a host file, though, and how does one fix it...?!?

I'm sorry to say the ad on mine says "How dumb are you?" (How do they know?) It does then say Take an IQ test.

Generally the little ads and the sites recommended are New Zealand oriented on my computer.

Cheers, Caro.

Like Evie, mine are pretty much book oriented and not as intrusive as the MSN ads.

Also like Evie, what's a host file and how do you fix it?

I find the ads on this site much less intrusive than the MSN board.  And I know from a forum that uses the same host that pretty soon you learn to ignore what ads there are!

Mine are the same - but I also saw a psychic ad. and found my way here!

So what is a g(host) file and how do you exorcise it?

Seems we're all quite interested in this, evangeline.  How does one fix one's host file?

Yes, I've had the ad for Hot Polish Women. I just hope one of them's a plumber...

Cool

   That's the best laugh I've had in a long time, Greywolf.  Thanks for that.

My son mentioned something on this site, and I wondered what he was talking about.  "The great big red ad, Mum, at the top."  "Oh, I don't see ads."  "No, you have an amazing facility to just see what you want to see."  Hmmm.

But yesterday I did notice I have ads of hot gay men, followed by hot gay women.  And I am not sure what I have said to gain that.  Often get NZ stuff here.

Cheers, Caro.
