...By the way, I've just read an article in the newspaper saying that google ads together with facebook, twitter and the likes are the threat not only to american way of life, but also to democracy and our civilization as a whole. I say thre's something to it... Their only goal is money and greed can be dangerous - but that's already off topic...

Read "World Without Mind:  The Existential Threat of Big Tech" by Franklin Foer.  It's not money that the CEOs of Apple, Google, Amazon, and Facebook are after, though they do want to be profitable.  Rather, they pursue a collectivist goal through their technology, because they believe that will usher in a Utopia.  Yes, it is definitely anti-liberty.

The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen.

Never could figure out what the hung "jet" model behind Robert Shaw was supposed to represent, Heinkel 178 maybe? Dumbed downed straight-wing Republic F-84?  The A-4 rocket farther back above looks like something out of Buck Rogers. Fieseler 103 to right is more like it except for oil funnel nose cap, prop guy probably used one to make it!

Too bad the whole film was so dumbed down, could'a been good watching if only 1/2 again as prop accurate particularly the German armor.

It probably depends on the browser your using or who you chose as your provider like AOL or others.

Innitially I wasn't seeing those ads but they are there now Including the huge green one that pops up covering most of the screen.

Breitbart is notorious for full-screen ads, FOX News sometimes has 1/2 screen ads, worst are some news & entertainment websites. Also hate screen side-entry ads whilst scrolling down. Most aggrevating is phantom audio coming on whilst viewing and/or listing to something else, no way can stop it except bailing the webpage.

Static ads on webpages OK with me so long as not patently offensive. Closeable ads asking me why am bailing are best, say "Not Interested" mostly, political ones automatically say "Offensive" regardless of persuasion; The Planned Parenthood ones mysteriously don't include "Offensive", do wonder why.

There's a pharmacy product TV-style ad making rounds of a Kathy Griffin look-alike wearing white jumpsuit pajamas plopping down on people's beds, other weird places saying weird stuff, super creepy, sick even.

I think when all the ads are on its slowing the site way down I've had trouble even getting it to come up earlier I tried to post a build I just gave up the site was moving slowly.

I suppose that is one advantage of mobile over desktop... even though the site’s compatibility with Apple IOS is less than optimal. 

We get what we pay for I guess...

Hi,

It's funny that right after reading this thread one of these ads came up on the next thread that I opened, as shown in the screen capture below.  I wasn't logged into FSM at the time and was just surfing as a guest, but I don't know if that makes any difference.

Well there is a solution to stopping obstructive ads. If using chrome, download Adblock from the chrome web store. It blocks spam/scam ads with fake content redirecting you to random places around the web. Though some ads will stay, i.e. the fsm forum ads advertising their subscriber only content and whatnot. If you don’t use chrome, you can download it or try to see if you can download Adblock from their website (I think they have a site). Anyways, hope this can maybe help. 

Adblock chrome webstore:

LOL, I've seen those ads too though not here! Lately I've been getting a bunch of ads for shoes- which I don't understand since I've never bought shoes online or even looked at them! 

The rest are stuff that does make sense, ads for HobbyLink Japan which I do visit their site often and cell phones after I looked around for a new one.

I still don't see those ads, here in Finescale.  I'm running Win10 and using Firefox 58.0.2, and Chrome v63.0.3239.132.  I do see some ads on other forums.  They're presented via Google Ads, and when I feel inclined, I'll click to hide them.  Usually I ignore them.  Those ads presented via Google Ads are selected by their algorithms, showing ads based on your surfing habits.  A good reason to minimize or eliminate your interaction with Google, if you can.  I use DuckDuckGo as my search engine, for example.

Very true! I use Pale Moon and DuckDuckGo on all my personal electronic stuff and only Chrome and Google on the work computer. 

The dating site I think might just be random since it only came up a handful of times. I'm getting a BMW and a MasterCard ad on this site now which I'm guessing is more non-targeted stuff. 

It's the shoe ads that just really confuse me, I haven't been to to any online shoe stores and I'd been getting a lot of them! It doesn't really bother me or anything, I just find it hilarious that Google has decided I need a new pair of shoes!!!
