Is it just me, or is everyone now being hit with Google pop up ads on this forum?
No Google Paul? I didn't realise there was anything else out there that was any good.My whole system is Apple, and I am starting to see ads as well
I don’t use Google as my search engine
I use the search engine “Duck Duck Go”No Google Paul? I didn't realise there was anything else out there that was any good.
'Dad, whats the capital of Iceland?'
'Just Bing it son'. Said no one ever
This. Me too.I use the search engine “Duck Duck Go”
No pop up ads, and they don’t track you.
Search results seem to be even better than Google. Google filters the results, so you don’t see a lot of content that may of interest to you
Agreed, a certain amount of advertising is OK and necessary to fund this place. It’s how intrusive it is that winds people up. It’s a pity this thread isn’t in the car park, because if it was I could state what I said when that “darned” pop up came up for the umpteenth time!It isn'tt the Google footer that annoys me- as I agree, it isn't a charity. It is the great big banner header to some game thing that I was surprised at. At first I thought that it was malware of some form as it just fills the screen (well, my screen anyway).
I too noticed this, and I too (rightly or wrongly) made the same connection when ads started popping up.May or may not be related to this
I agree with you - you could lock this one as far as I'm concerned.Chaps before we start too many conspiracy theories the new owner Roo is trying to sort out the complex and very messy software. Basically, it is a real mess. There is no secret plan to bombard you with Google ads. It will be fixed. There is a long list of issues that should have been addressed but were not. I am afraid it will need patience until resolved.
