I know that advertising is necessary to support the website. I'm just getting used to, and only mildly annoyed by, ads between postings in a thread. However, it gets ridiculous when ads get inserted in the middle of a post.

So here is something you won't believe:

This was a surprise to me too. I am trying to figure out what is going on. I changed no settings and the last update was a while back which did not cause this. We use Google AdSense to help generate a little bit of money to help offset the costs but Google has no power over where ads get placed. I will contact my IT guy (that costs money) and see what he knows about these changes.

Seriously though. This surprised me too. I only saw it once though, then never again. I hope it is not a spam problem.

Just saw the ads in the middle of posts...........ugh........it was annoying when it was in between. So, JAR, what is the income from Google Ads? I would pony up another contribution to stop them......... others?
