    Just curious if the advertisements on this site are implemented from 3Reef or if some are from cookies from other websites?

    I just saw a strange advertisement having nothing to do with aquaria and I don't think my work computer would have gone to any website advertising mail order brides.

    Google knows all, that is all I have to say. :eek:

    When I go to mail order bride sites liveaquaria.com advertisements pop up.

    Some are from 3reef, some are Google ads. The 3reef ones also show up in the sponsors section.

    I was gonna ask why you would be visiting a mail order bride site, but nevermind... I might not want to know the answer. Haha

    +1 Google is everywhere and plants ads anywhere it can. Personally, I use Firefox with the AdBlock Plus addon... no ads anywhere for me. :D

    Thank god someone else gets my twisted sense of humor.;)

    I actually just saw a question posted in honesty by a man, he was asking why he was getting a certain type of google spam. Oh I laughed.


    @mdbostwick I get the same ads in the margins. I pm'd Matt when I first joined asking him why, I got no reply, and yet he still made me a mod. :laughing0

    So in closing I have no idea why, I am just messing with you.

    That's a great tip Mr Bill. I hate getting spammed while looking for mail order brides.

    I know. I just thought it was strange that my new work computer had mail order bride ads popping up.

    On my home computer I have adblock as well and get none of the nonsense ads. :)

    Pretty spelled out in this thread, but if you see any google ones like that bride stuff - right click on it and try to pull out the destination URL and send me a PM with it.

    There is a blacklist filter I can add those too. I add to it from time to time.

    This is a commercial site, the ads keep the lights on and the site free for users. Thank you for your understanding.
