    'Anyone who contributed to the recent funding drive will not see the ads for quite a long time.'

    Looks like Quite A Long Time is up, then?

    Certainly does. You have to read this in the best traditional deep south Blues style.....

    I woke up this morning and switched on my PC.
    I logged into cyclechat to find adverts targeted at me?
    This isn't like the site I used to use.
    I got those internet advert banner blues.....

    I just saw them myself. A question for @Shaun or anyone else that knows. Do the ads give revenue only when clicked, or do you get revenue just for displaying them? The answer will determine if I block them or not.

    I'm not seeing any ads or banners on my laptop.

    Not sure if it makes any difference, but I'm using Linux OS with Firefox browser, and with the "Ghostery" ad blocker enabled.

    Me too!
    Fortunately just Cannondale bikes and oak furniture land at the moment.

    I await the over 40s dating site ones that are bound to come along soon.

    I assumed it was because I was using free hotel Wi-Fi, as I logged in this morning at home ad free then logged in from the hotel to see them. They are annoying.

    Yeah, I get that one and as it's close to selecting a cycle to work voucher it might yet entice. The over 40 thing not so much.

    The Renault Captur one is annoying as it even shows someone apparently programming the satnav from their smart phone. If that isn't encouraging phone use while driving then what is!!!!!!

    ColinJ A big clot!

    I would prefer to pay a small annual subscription to get them removed.

    The other choice that I would like is to watch a 'rewarded video' every now and then to pay my way. Say 30 seconds once every couple of weeks. They earn site owners more revenue than static ads.

    Would have thought they might target you with adverts for elasticated waistband trousers for midgets! :tongue::tongue:
