So, if this forum is not supposed to be politically oriented and the coffee shop was closed for basically this reason, why are there political ads running at the top of the pages?

While I agree with you 100% be prepared for the usual” If you don’t like it don’t look comments”

Howie, ignoring threads of this kind are no problem. My gripe is that it is ‘advertising’! Seems to fly in the face of the implied restrictions.

Simple answer. Because someone else owns this website not you.

COL’s got it all right on this one. I’m a Republican and I’m already sick of seeing Romney’s face flanking all the projects I love here. Like COL said, I don’t get to make the rules.

I am still amazed people surf the internet without adblock plus installed. I have never seen an ad on this website (or any others for that matter. This is what it looks like for me:

Joe, I use a weakly powered little netbook for my LJ’g. The processor is too slow to run much in the background. On my big rigs, I have a blocker installed.

I’m with Lumberjoe – I use Google Chrome with adblock and I NEVER see the advertisements. It’s the only way to fly!

Whitewulf- adblock has a free version that is well known and highly regarded, why should it be any surprise that Lumberjoe uses and recommends it. That’s like suggesting Delta pays me off every time I praise my fine quality bandsaw or drill press (you know where to send the check to for that one Delta, and no skimping, I mentioned two tools).
That said, I like the ads, but they do adjust to the sites you visit based on the cookies on your computer. Mine usually feature bike equipment, tools, comics and ta ta’s; what more can a guy ask for.

Certainly but I make no attempt to block them, as I said, I like them and sometimes it amuses me to click on them.

Adblock is free. I’m not even aware of a paid version. As far as processing power, it is just a browser plug in and does not require anything special. My son has a little netbook and I run it on that also with no issues. I use google chrome as a browser and find that functions well on a netbook as well as larger more powerful computers.. It is very fast and very light weight. I know talking about browsers is similar to politics and religion. Everyone has their own strong opinion, and they aren’t likely to change it, but if you haven’t used Chrome, give it a shot.

I also use software that disables tracking cookies, so if I were to allow ads, I have NO idea what they would be based on.

Whitewulf- Adblock Plus is free and works so well I forget I have it. These posts noticing/complaining about LJ’s ads remind me of how great it is. On this type of post you will almost always see someone reminded of their blocking program and telling other LJ’s about it. -Jack

AdBlock- Increase your midichlorian count it will.
