Perhaps you recently looked up some vacation website. If you google almost anything, like “umbrellas”, expect to see a lot of umbrella ads on your screen.
It just knows.

Mostly air related (anybody want to buy a spare engine?) and travel related for me. I can live with that.

Two of the 23 threads in the DAL section are now ads, if it goes to 5, I'm done here.

Rules of the forum state:

The Ad program seems not to cover posting and makes puts them in violation of the terms here. They should be removed.

Unfortunately, the new sponsored ads seem to be something Internet Brands (owner of this site) has endorsed.

In other words: not just some guy posting spam. It’s website-company-approved spam.

Write to Internet Brands and let them know of your displeasure.
