    Is it me or is there something happening with the forum :whatthe:

    Between some forum chat lines there are lines of ads appearing, they are usually just along the sides of the screen.

    Help, is this turning as BBC / Sky -- pay and no ads then pay and ads as well :Eeek:

    What I think is more scarey is that the ads usually have something to do with what I have recently typed.

    I dumped my wellingtons and someone 'found' them and an advert for wellies appeared withing minutes...:Eeek::Eeek::Eeek:

    I do not mind adverts if subscription fees are reasonable.

    The only ads you should be seeing at he moment are on the right below my professional shop advert and top right. Sometimes I have small ads under the first post but not right now. However If your not logged in or not a subcsriber, you'll see others.

    I often get ads between the posts

    But i thought it was my provider here in Belgium as they are Belgian ads

    And like Joy says they are ofren related to what you have just serched on line.

    It`s all to do with cookies, if you have looked at or searched for a certain item , your pc cookies will remember and pull up ads to do with it.
    I know sometimes I have looked at a old MHF posting and find there are x2 others watching :Eeek:--this is cookies that are watching me.
    Where are these cookies looking too when I go to the loo :roflmto:
