    Google Ads

    The ads at the top of the CF homepage now are "Arizona DUI Penalties" and "Florida Criminal Defense." Yikes...

    Re: Google Ads

    Well, "DUI" and "crime" have been words on here a lot. The ads that appear are content based.

    Re: Google Ads

    I just saw the best google ad to date on the top of the page:

    GAY
    Are You?

    It was linked to a quiz you could take to help determine if you are gay. I had a good chuckle over that one. And before someone asks...No, I didn't click on the link.

    Re: Google Ads

    Then how do you know it was linked to a quiz? All I saw was the "Gay, Are You?" link.

    And please know that we are all family here and if you have something to tell us all about we will not judge.

    Yeah, I didn't click the male enhancement link, but they have a lot of information and free shipping!

    Re: Google Ads

    With all the recent talk about ads, I didn't realize the ads were in place until I used someone else's computer.

    Thank you adblocker.

    Re: Google Ads

    These threads are getting pretty annoying already. The one comment I will make is that they slow down my connection to CF VERY badly. Two sites I go to have Google ads and they both take forever to load now. Just started happening a couple of days ago. Every other site I go to loads up in a flash.

    When I go to my CF.com bookmark, the initial page background loads, then the status bar at the bottom shows "connecting to googlesyndication.com" and sits there for about 30 seconds before the rest of the page comes up. Hopefully its something that Google is working on fixing.

    Could the problem be with your computer? I am having no problems with speed. If the adds keep this site going I am all for them.

    As I said, all other sites I go to load in a flash. Broadband speed tests are showing normal. If its a problem with the computer I haven't found it.
