Well I'm not around here as much as I used to be/or would like to be for that matter(love all you guys), and I just got the chance to check in here again. I just noticed to increased presence of ads on certain pages that are touting(sp?) the use of registry cleaners/offers to scan your computer for errors. For a site dedicated to helping people with their comuters problems doesn't anyone else see a conflict of interest with said ads? I dunno I mean I know ads make revenue for this great site to stay up and running just seems kinda cheezy to me :busy:

We do in fact work to remove or filter out bad ads. You need to inform Grinler of the bad ads in question. We cannot control what NEW ads Google decides to put out, but once they appear we can take steps to filter them out.

Next time you see an inappropriate ad, you should right click on the link, click on copy link and pm it to me so I can filter it out . . .

Members when logged in shouldn't be seeing the ads. See this topic: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic50648.html

I don't see ads at all logged in or not because I have them blocked through my security settings as do most of us that are on staff here.
