    I don't know if I'm more annoyed with this site or with that company. I was just beginning to think I'd want to come here again, but never fucking mind. Homophobic porn companies ARE NOT WELCOME IN MY WORLD.

    RJ doesn't pick the ads that are posted here, they subscribe to google which places ads based on site content and the perceived interest of the people who are visiting the site. Since this is a gay site, google places the gay porn ads. Since this is also a dating site, they place Zoozk.com ads. Since I live in China, I get lots of ads about "Asian Singles in Your Area."

    Don't stress about it too much. You can reload the page to ignore the ad.

    This is the answer. RJ doesn't hand-pick the ads here, they are a package to generate revenue. You'll find similar stuff on other gay sites.

    Though frankly I preferred when we could purchase an optional RJ premium membership, that blocked all the ads. I guess the numbers worked better with this current arrangement, all free with ads, and less overhead managing pay accounts. But I'd pay again if I had that option (and get a neat RJ T-shirt, too).

    Words in a forum can be recognized, so some very odd ads for this site can pop up. Also it tracks where you have been. If you have just been to Overstock.com, ads for that site will appear here and the product you were looking at will appear in that ad.

    Try using AdblockPlus and you will not have to see any of the ads on here, on Facebook, YouTube, or anywhere.

    Everybody's banner ads must be different... For the last couple of months all the ads I've been getting (on RJ and everywhere else) are, um, men's bags and shoes... icon_redface.gif

    I was somewhat surprised by it as well. If it bothers you to see it advertised, you can try this browser plugin called AdBlock (for Firefox , Chrome and potentially IE). If it bothers you in principle, then you could try emailing the RJ admins to see if they would do something about it. Also, congratulations on $0 debt, btw!

    no dancerjack, please stay!

    I'm not sure, but I think with Google's adsense, the admin may be able to block specific ads. I have adsense on my sites, but I never had the need to block an ad, so I don't know for sure.

    Edited to add: Apparently you can, though I don't know if the admin will do that.

    But please stay icon_sad.gif
