Why am I getting an advert for an xbox? Shocked

There used to be semi useful adverts (eg linux related one!) but now all i get is xbox or 'myfavouritemagazines.co.uk' (I assume that is where u can buy LXF from)

Any other random adverts seen around?

"About" to be used is why you have those other adverts in the first place Laughing

Laughing AdblockPlus and I've only blocked *.ru and *.doubleclick.net, makes a huge difference.

Our company launched a new travel insurance product for people going abroad for medical treatment. Ever since then dilbert.com has been displaying quite a lot of breast enlargement adverts on it's site. *sigh* Laughing

Now it's GoogleAds: block the original image from the ad-server and you'll get some GoogleAds instead. And these are not images from a server, but inserted scripts, which make me quite anxious...

Future, do something about it and if you don't, loose business: mine! (and probably others too) I've already payed for my subscribtion, so I expect an ad-free site to surf around. A bit of your own ads I can live with, but this is waaaaayyy over the top... Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad
