Can’t we all just pay a £10 membership fee per year and not have ads? Ian would get a nice revenue and we wouldn’t have to look at advertisement photos of partially naked women just after we have had posts deleted for posting photos of partially naked women.

Just a thought.

Mind you, I saw an advert for these and they’re ever so comfy.

They've just run a string of 'find your perfect 40+' (or some such) featuring bigger and bigger droopy t*ts.

I don't mind the scantily clad Russian girls, or the female knicker ads but this is going just a bit too far............

:lol: C'mon @TheFarmer You said you wouldn't pose like that again. :roll: The dog has just run and hid at the sight of you. :lol:

I agree about £ 10 to get rid of the advertising though.

How many regular posters who’d cough up?

1,000?

@G-BLEW - would £10,000 per annum give us a forum that didn’t look like a Swindon bus stop?

Name your price. :D

This sort of thing (that people report) makes me glad I've never bought a copy of Flyer.

And that my Adblocker seems to do a good job at removing this.

I don't care abut the ads - so have no ball in this game... But I have been clicking on the little disclosure button on some of them to see 'why'. Just out of idle curiosity more than anything else.

This made me chuckle... Nothing says more about 10:19AM on a Sunday. Or being near J15 of the M4... than this:-

I'm afraid I'm one of those heretics that uses Chrome and it's plugins on the Mac. No doubt @stevelup will be along in a minute to explain why that's bad ;-)

To start off with some pragmatic comments about Chrome. It can be a bit of a memory hog, and definitely uses more power than Safari, but unless you're trying to eke every last bit of power out of your battery, it really isn't important.

I use Safari because all my bookmarks / recently visited pages / passwords etc., are synced across all my devices (iMac, MacBook, iPad, iPhone).

I could use a Google account to do the same with Chrome which would offer the further benefit of helping Google snoop on everything I do. It might make my targeted ads more reliable too which brings this back on topic. Every cloud... ;)

Don't forget that Chrome ignores your system wide DNS settings and -always- makes sneaky requests to Google's DNS servers. And even if you block 8.8.4.4 and 8.8.8.8 on your firewall, it tries using myriad other addresses as well. But if you're cool with that, that's also fine!

I mean, on that basis you could argue that it's virtually malware.

Have to say I'm yet to see a compelling argument for using anything other than Safari on Apple devices.
