    Icon8 Irritating Advertisements.

    I believe everyone has noticed the ads. I have tried ad-block, yet it still does not work. I find these advertisements very disturbing, I have seen ads for electives for the new president, I have seen ads for insurance. My goodness, a few voiced-over ads have had cursing in it! It would be a much better website for younger kids if these advertisements were removed. (I did not know which forum to put this under.)

    Agreed. In large letters.

    If I understand correctly, the ads keep the website free.
    I wouldn't want to pay membership to be here, would you? [:

    I suppose not, but you would think our sponsers could take a little consideration about us.

    A lot of times, I'll see ads from recent store websites I've visited.
    I guess the others are random.
    Ads are ads.
    I don't think the advertisers care, as long as they get the product out there, ya know?

    But I would think FRI would have a better way of blocking them, and they should have the option to choose what ads they allow on the site. It's not like advertisers are shoving the ads in their faces, and forcing them to puti t on the website, right? Right...?

    It makes perfect sense, logically.
    Unfortunatley, I don't think they have control over the ads. To keep it free, they have to allow ads. They don't have a say.
    I don't think they have the funding really to run the site, as, say, a store would.
    Not enough people would find membership worth it.
    They put a stop to bots from blogging by removing blogs entirely.
    Personally I find it odd that somehow they know where I've been shopping.

    I haven't heard any bad ads, but the only ones that annoy me are the ones that have sound, and even then I just have to refresh the page. At one point I thought you could PM admins about the ads but I don't know if they can control them now.

    I understand they make this website free and so on, but I know when my point has been beaten. Gagerz, you win x]

    As somebody above said, some ads are random but some of them are just based on your search/browsing history. I haven't seen any ads that have cusses in them, just Free Realms and dish-soap and that kind of stuff.
