What did you expect from Canada these days, this wouldn't happen if Mulroney was still running the show up there. :lol:

It's getting pretty silly, I now have images dancing across photos that are posted on this site. Damn kids!

It wouldn't bug me (no pun intended) if the same ads didn't show up on off-the-server pictures posted. I get the same ads over my Flickr hosted images on here too. sapping up ad dollars on pictures that aren't even "theirs".

New Ant-Man movie, I believe.

I'd like to take some fire ants, put them on Michael Phelps' toothbrush and cram it up his nose. Ridiculous! I'll have 6 fish photos in a report and have 6 simultaneous videos playing of the big pothead dork brushing his teeth, completely covering my pics.

I must be doing something wrong. No idea what you guys are talking about. And besides being a freak of nature, what's wrong with Michael Phelps?
Keep calm and fish on...

There's a fine line between fishing and just sitting there looking stupid

Use the Google Chrome browser and then add the Chrome free 'ad blocker' and you see NO ads at ALL
WCF looks like it did when Jason owned it.

I just did and it works well! Michael Phelps and his foamy mouth of toothpaste and drool has been killed! I kind of miss the flying ant people though. :(

Verticalscope, the same company that gobbled up Ch i ca goland fishing. c0m. They buy up active forum sites with the intent to capitalize and load them up with ads until everyone's browser chokes and freezes up.

Yeah it's gone a step to far covering pics entirely and now the 'movie' ads. Welcome Adblock Plus!

BTW the weather site I use has gone to full-page ads that take you away form the site content entirely along with every nook and cranny filled with ads. That also tripped my wanting to block them limits. They have a dialog that pops up when you block their ads now that will SELL you an ad-free pass. Pffft :roll: Choak your site with ads to the border of usability and then let people pay for the privilege of having the site work again... nice.
