Fair enough. The operators of the site asked us not to use blockers as that's how they keep the site alive. So I honor that request.
Just seems contradictory to me that we can't discuss it but the ads supports the site.

Thank you both for pointing out the obvious.

I don't use ad blocking software but have not been getting political adds here. Whatever is in a banner ad I ignore anyway. But I do anticipate that as we progress into August and then the fall we are all going to be bombarded with the worst most viscous and outright false media ads of our lives. I do not anticipate a fly rod or reel to appear in any of them.

The ads seem to reflect what you are using your browser to access, I see ads for fishing equipment, no political ads. So it seems you are getting bombarded by ads of your own doing. Right now a Smith ad at the top and a Simms ad at the bottom. Have seen other sites where people complain about ads for porn sites, then someone points out that the ads are a product of their browser searches.

Please explain why I get ads for womens undergarments - with an emphasis on incontinence

I just figured out that this is not my own thread regarding politics.

I was off the grid beginning early last Friday July 17th through late Monday night July 20th.

For future reference, if anyone has questions regarding political ads please contact either myself or Kristy (Editor) through the forum messaging system. If I am away, which can happen, the reply may be delayed. No need to post threads which could invite a more lively reply than what you may be expecting.

Thanks :)
