Am I the only one seeing advertisements for OSM, the company doing the hiring for pilots for NAI?

Perhaps a petition to the forum to Deny NAI is in order?

I don't see them, but I believe the ads are placed based on your previous searches. So basically if you have been googling couches your gonna have couch ads.

Maybe for the banner type ads, but these are embedded. Along with other aviation ads for republic and go jet and PSA..

I see an ad for Sea Ray boats on top of this page and 2 ads for leasing a Rolls Royce car.
Looks like they have the wrong guy, no Rolls for me in the foreseeable
Future, but been thinking about a boat..:cool:

An app for iPads?

Trying to quit friendly Chinese ladies so that should not be a problem.

I use Opera browser on my desktop, for my old ipad Dolphin browser has an adblocker. Probably more options but these were free.

It's an extension for Google Chrome, and other browsers. However, there is Adblock Browser (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/adblock-browser/id1015653330?mt=8) which works for both Android and iOS.

I haven't used Opera for a while. Is the adblock built in, or do you have to download an extension? If it's an extension, which do you use?

Built in, I'm not at my desktop right now but I think it's just a tick box to turn it on.

Would it be better to click on the ad, don't they have to pay for clicks? I don't know, seems like that was a tactic used in political campaigns before.

Some sites get money from clicking on advertisements. If that's the case here, then yes they'd pay for clicks and APC would get money. Certain types of websites use this tactic to gain money, and it's why I use Adblock Plus in Chrome, and Adblock Browser on my Android and iOS devices.

Hey! Yes, that's most likely retargeting, they are not a direct advertiser.

That being said, I can certainly blacklist them from the site. Can you elaborate, provide more reasoning for me to blacklist them from the Community? Thank you.
