    Today, when I logged into the forum, there were two pictures of a woman
    with her breasts bared in the "Hot" ads for bidding. Please remove this sponsor. (shopping ads)

    It's probably not a BB ad.

    it was right next to the "Huckabee for President" link - and there are still "shopping ads" up there, so it will rotate around to the nude woman again.

    THAT'S weird...that sounds more like a "Bill Clinton for President" ad.

    We are getting more raunchy ads now than we ever did before. They used to be blocked immediately, but not so anymore.

    Use Firefox with Adblock Plus add in. You don't see any.

    Haven't seen an ad here in years - course I do the same as MP.

    I can block ads on the internet, and on my paltalk account with a little tweak to my 'hosts' file on my pc.

    Wow, I'm agreeing with MP!?!

    Yes, Firefox with Adblock Plus gets rid of them!

    you people obviously don't see the end point of it all do you...

    if some non-christian wanting to ask questions on some forum and stumbled across this forum and saw that kind of ad..

    what do you think that person would think?

    why would the baptist board support such lust-filled ads anyways?
    who cares if it's paying for the forum to run.
    get the heck rid of it.

    I do and I agree with you 100%!

    If I was looking for a Baptist board to join and I saw those ads, I would pass it by.

    However, no one can do anything about this but Andrew. We can do nothing.

    There has been a thread in the Mod Forum about it for two weeks.

    I do know that in order to block certain ads, Andrew has to have the URL, not just a picture or the name of the ad.

    Please right click on these ads and hit properties. Copy the URL, then paste it in a PM and send it to Andrew. It is up to him what he does with them. Our hands are tied. We do not have access to that part of the control panel.
