I understand ANY fish or aquarium related ads on this site but a christian dating service?! c'mon that's just silly and kind of pathetic. I hope you (Marcos) have some sort of say as to what ads google puts up here.

I actually laughed when I saw that one the first time. I do have the option to block specific ads, but I don't think it's the case at hand. Just take it for its humoristic aspect... Laughing

I doubt they'll be advertising for long anyway...

Laughing gotcha Marcos

-Heather- It's sad and pathetic because this is a website dedicated to fishkeeping, it is not a social networking site nor does it have a christian affiliation. Before anyone jumps down my throat, it would be just as bad if it were a buddhist dating service, an ad for a mortgage lender or penis pills as they have nothing to do with the content on this site at all. Frankly, I despise internet advertisements of any type but can tolerate them when they are at least relevent to the information provided within the page.

Ah, well I didn't see it because I don't pay attention to the ads, but I can see what you're saying.

I ignore the little google ads, I just click the ones with the fishies in them. TwoFishGuys and Liveaquaria come to mind. I haven't seen these ads yet but I do remember one that was a horror site that was around Halloween but every time I saw it I wanted to click it, and I think I did and wasn't impressed. Laughing

my favourite one so far is for "Nude Snorkeling in St. Maarten". I was under the impression that you shouldn't snorkel with bait Wink

Yes, it really works. Very Happy There are some ads it misses, but there are ways to tell it to block something.
