Wink More about banner ads!!

I know the website needs an income stream, and we know pilots would never pay to use this (or any) forum site, but...... I'm in Osaka on a layover. I know the web knows all, who I am (computer id), where I'm at, and more annoying, my browsing history... but come on...I I'm getting banner ads for Russian hookers!! Ok so thats before I logon. It does go away, then its Japanese, something or other (not nearly as interesting!! ). I wish there was a better way

Ha, maybe they saw your profile thumbnail pic and went from there.

Thank you so much for bringing this up, and for being such an active user of our Community. It means a lot to me, and the team here.

Allow me to confirm: we don't sell (and we never will) ads like the ones that you claim to be seeing ("banner ads for Russian hookers").

It's most likely a specific user targeting, independently served by the platform that we use to traffic banners (which is DFP, which is Google).

The platform serves the direct ads that we sell *plus* programmatic remnant ads, that are supposed to be filling out the unsold inventory of ads.

If you register and sign up, you'll see fewer ads on the site.

Hope this clarifies/help.

Nick
