Martin – if this is not appropriate to post, feel free to remove it. I know Ads make Lumberjocks money, and not sure if you appreciate me posting this. BUT, some do not like Ads. I dont really have a preference. I can easily ignore them, but at the same time, i like having them gone.

You dont want to see Ads?? Follow these steps…..

1. This is for Google Chrome users (I use a Mac, but steps will be similar for Windows)
2. Click on Preferences
3. Click on Extensions (on left)
4. Click on Get More Extensions (at bottom)
5. Search for AdBlock
6. Install
7. Look for icon on your web browser…..

if you see the stop sign with the hand in it…...the adblocker is working…..

Thanks, but I get a sick kick out of responding to a thread that something “crapped its pants”, then seeing the Depends ad pop up before I can say dammitman. ;=)

Not sure we want the ads to go away. No ads, then members would have to pay a fee to be a part of a great site. The ads pay for us to have a great FREE site. Martin has to pay for bandwidth and all that goes along with a business. I’m glad he has been able to get some great advertisers on board so I don’t have to pay for such a great site.

I understand not liking seeing the ads, but the alternative…...

Just my two cents.

Hey Jim….if you have a mac…you click on Chrome in the upper left hand corner…..

If you have Windows…(I might be wrong) There should be an icon of a wrench somewhere (near the top left or right). click on that wrench and preferences should be in there…...otherwise click on File….or something like that, and it should be within there. I could be wrong, I dont use Windows. Sorry, hopefully that works – maybe someone else can answer it better for you…..

Jim, I’m with you…I cannot finf the Preferences button…not even with the wrench icon or in the file setting.
I use Windows Explorer 7. Let me know if you find it.
