Adverts on E4U

Post by LovelyLadyLux »

I just opened the Lynx video post and I see MY post however between my original post and then first comment there is a huge BANNER AD going across my screen! :xx :xx

It was about EBAY and posted by Google!!!

I then opened my next post re: Alexa and YUP the same thing .........

I've never had this happen before on here - getting adverts inserted between the comments.

Is anybody else getting this? Is this something that Keefy has just allowed or opted to do as it generates $$ to allow Advertisers? or ??

Geez I hope this was just an aberration as I quite enjoyed this Forum being advert free

LLL, as you have posted this in the 'Just for Fun' section I am not sure if you are joking or not? You certainly should not be seeing any Google adds on these forum pages? You may of course get advertising on the actual YouTube video itself. :ni:
Edit: I suggest you run your anti virus checker to see if you have a trojan.

Sorry - I meant to post it in General Discussion cause I'm more than serious that it is happening! :xx

Dunno if this can be moved or not

I'm seeing them too. After your post saying they have moved, Horus, I get a large dark gap before the next post! :(

I do allow ads to be shown by Amazon and google but they should be at the top right of the screen (above the clock) where the other ads are, I will investigate this further tonight to try and solve this issue :)

This is what I was suddenly getting on E4U. It was from my post re: the Lynx cats.

I've just had a Fix Windows 10 advert in the middle of this thread - it's a Google intrusion. I've never had any advertising before on either this site or L4U, :x


What I hate with these is they are "Ad Choices", I carefully delete them all every day, expressing a wish for no advertising intrusions ......... I may become very vexed about this. :xx
Smile! It confuses people

I have Keefy looking into this as we speak, he only allows the small Google & Amazon adds that should only appear in the top right hand box and are quite unobtrusive., strangely enough I do not see these adds you are all complaining about so hard to know what is going on. :tk

OK it looks like I have fixed it :D

If ads are shown they will only show in the ad bar above the clock (top right) so they will not affect the forum in anyway (ads have always shown there) :)

I know you only get peanuts from someone clicking on the ads but with fortune I pay out each year on domain names and hosting every little peanut helps :lol:

Hint Hint - so please give a quick click on the google ads now and again..... Thanks :)

LLL if you still have the huge annoying one which I could see now and again, just clear your cache (temp folder)

Welllllllllllllll - I DID clear the cache (deleted cookies and I hope that is what clear the cache meant).

Right now - I am seeing an add up above the clock and it is EBAY and some pottery sculpting sticks I was looking at earlier this evening so am guessing that somehow I'm managed to attract Google or Amazon or the $#%@$! Ad monster to track me :xx

I don't like Adverts PERIOD but I'd rather see random ads up there in the upper right corner knowing that they're just random ads but seeing exactly what I was looking at online earlier now on E4U feels really - ummmm - BAD.

This cyber stuff is getting bad. It haunts your life to pop up unexpectedly when you least expect it - akin to being in the grocery store looking at the bananas and then suddenly seeing a former client (for lack of a better word) you dealt with who was not a nice person!

There should be a law against this type of intrusion into your life. I'm not blaming Keefy or E4U I'm blaming the powers that be who run, direct & operate cyberworld.
