    I use adblocker at home. One thing does irritate me about this site though is certain 'trigger' words turn into advertising hyperlinks.

    Take, for instance, the name of a long river in Brazil. Every time I use that it links to their site. My posts are not ads for them & I resent a perfectly good name being hijacked to supply advertising. It would be great if you could turn that off. The long river in Brazil doesn't pay me to advertise for them.

    The site could earn a couple quid for the privilege though which keeps the cost down for the rest of us. :okay:

    I don't mind ads as they are obviously ads. I do mind large international companies effectively 'owning' a perfectly good word and cheekily getting me to advertise for them when I use it. They never asked, no consultation. Worth noting that countries nearby the long South American river are now taking them on over appropriation of the internet name:
