I just came across a roundup ad. Has the sun gotten to Paul in San Diego? Or are those ads on the bottom based on my search history?

Hi Nate . Here is a link to a thread explaining things . I like to think of those ads as irony .

The ads i see at the bottom are about Ladakh and the rest of India, so yeah, I think they are based on one's own other searches, not chosen by Permies.

Hi, Satamax...could you tell us how to use Adblock???
for me it needs to be the 'how to' for someone who knows nothing

Here's a link to download Adblock. Other than the little red octagon in the upper right hand corner of my screen, I would have no idea it was running. Except that I don't see any ads -- even Monsanto wasting their hoard of cash they get from suing seed savers.

The ads are creepy but I mostly don'tt see them. Advertise as they might, they will never get me to buy glyphosate (roundup), I wouldn't use it if they gave it to me, and I actively discourage any farmers or landowners near me from using it or anything like it.

Go ahead Monsanto, give Paul's empire a fraction of a penny for me!

...so if we use adblock there is no 'fraction of a penny' per ad to the empire? I might not use it then.

I had to disable Adblock+ on this site, because the YouTube links would not work properly for me.
My AB+logo is in the lower left corner of the screen.
If you click it, a pop-up menu appears. You have the option of disabling it on the site you are on.

I don't see how anybody can sanely surf the web without Ad Block+

Definitely!


You know you can even custom level the adds you block. For me, on IE8 (yes i know, but it works wonders with XP) it even takes adverts from youtube!

Sometime i have a little video bug here and there, but, nothing that a right click wouldn't solve. And the best thing is, nobody knows that they're blocked at your comp, so, the money still flows to the site owners :D
 
Let nothing stop you! Not even this tiny ad:
