"We" as in Poland?

 

 

 

 

I think the combined members of FSM can boast to owning as many tanks as any country... of course our are only models...

I just got off the Model Car's Magazine web site and the add's here are the same as the add's there.

I think the add's followed me here....... 

Havent been followed by women since 1997 !  I have "forgotten" what to do..... Buy them a drink ???     Throw money ?????     Run ????

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage".

Nah, it's that North Korean knuckle head with the funny looking dew!

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

Cross-referencing to a more recent thread about ads here in the forum:

I’m thinking it’s one’s own browser.

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.

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...

I guess that I spoke too soon. I just got a Facebook pop up add... one of those annoying wheel spin types... and I don’t even have a Facebook... lovely...

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!!!
