Is this Needed

Do we need this type of soliciting on the Forest River Forums?

If you reply to that particular ad, the lights do not need to be on....

Besides, Filipinos need dates too!

yvsem, I usually don't even pay attention to the ads, but I just got a similar ad to the 1 you posted. Like Dan said, the admins are working on a solution.

I have a friend that has been happily married to a Filipino girl for about 25 years.......he met her as a pen pal long before the internet came into being. Not to say that some people are not looking for love here, but most of us are just interested in camping stuff. Those that are looking for love they can search the web, but we need to leave those type of ads out of our banners.

This is a free forum for all that join. The banner ads are necessary to pay for server and other miscellaneous costs. I don't know that I have even clicked on an ad....for the most part I just ignore them. Now, if it was continuous pop-up ads, this ol' boy would probably not be here.

Advertising

FYI, I moved this post from a newly started thread to this thread. Chap


Administrators,

I realize adds pay for this great platform us RVers use to find information related to our products. I do however find it in very bad taste to have this as an advertiser "Filipino Cupid. com"

I am as opened minded as the next person but I just do not see this as the place for this type of advertising.

We get it-- I agree.

The ads rotate thru some sort of progression and it takes time to
get a specific ad blocked.

Admins have requested that ad be blocked but it might still come
around for the next few days.

Thanks for your patience and understanding!

So I guess if anyone is interested, they still have time to see if they offer free shipping!

I enjoyed the 'eye candy'. Now I have to look at that ugly Chev truck.

The ads that I see seem to all be Amsoil ads. It may have to do with the fact that I am an Amsoil dealer.

I think that the Google ads are somewhat personalized based on your search history.
