    Because the owner of this forum wants to make money. Ads aren't cool, but that's his business.

    I've noticed most ads are blocked when browsing the forum while logged in.

    This doesn't apply on my Android phone, however. On my Samsung, I get loads of ads at the bottom of each page (all forum threads) and an ad served with each image. I quite dislike it.

    The rest of us don’t have admin rights and get to have our cookies stolen so we can look at advertisements.

    Honestly, it’s so bad on this forum that half the time I can’t tell if a picture was posted by one of us or if it’s just another advertisement. I know I joke a lot and am an asshole, but I’m being serious about this.

    Please see the attached screenshot. Were you sharing a high school picture of yourself or is it just another advertisement?

    I see ads too, but no pop ups (using Safari on iOS). I just ignore the in post ads.

    No, I can't claim those poses lol.

    I guess what I'm saying is that those ads served on mobile devices are not from the forum? I don't have admin rights and I see those same stupid ads on my phone when logged in.

    Those ads are from the forum because someone chose to monetize this site.

    Go over to my website, www.dmctoday.com, and you won’t find a single advertisement because I don’t care about making money off of my friends. My website runs on the exact same software as this site.

    Personally I still just want to know what pryme won from Costco???
    Sorry had to be said...
    The adds do get a bit much as you miss pictures covered in advertisements videos..
    Usually things you would never consider purchasing..
    shouldn't they be adds for blue antifreeze,, rodent control,, and oversized batteries.. whatever the current topics are??
