    Ads & TD

    Dear Current admin,

    Currently, when I click on the TD homepage I now see a large banner in the upper right hand corner advertising about Bangkok Escorts.

    So now when I log on to TD my family also gets to see this ad.

    We had this conversation years ago and DD vetoed it then. Good job guys, DD would be shitting a brick about now.

    I realize TD needs money to continue to operate. How about asking the TD family instead of going the way of numerous Pattaya websites?

    Sincerely,
    hillbilly

    Or in other words; gay internet slang.

    Yes, I could block the ads. But that is not the issue.

    If HB doesn't know how to block ads in the year 2013 then something pushing a BKK escort service should be low priority.

    Presumably he is a Windows user, so the hosts file will be his friend.

    If you're using Chrome, Stylebot works well - you can just set the CSS of the offending element to no-display. Not sure if this is available for Firefox but you can write a little custom CSS to do the same. On the other hand, if Ad Block is a mystery, I may as well have written this in Ancient Sumerian.

    Thanks Wilson, green on the way. BTW, Firefox wanted to stop/prevent the installation of "Adblock." I over ruled it. Its certainly feels good to stop that painful B.S.. Hope it works everywhere I go? After Lawyers, doctor's, bankers, used car salesmen, advertisers are hateful unrelenting asstards.

    I think most of you posters are missing the point.

    The forum shouldn't be paid for from the proceeds of prostitution. I agree but I hardly imagine that whoever made the decision is going to change his mind because a few people complain; since a large number of visitors and members are in Thailand partly or mainly (or even entirely) because of the easy availability of paid-for sex, I think it's a little improbable that such an obvious source of funds will be overlooked. The only realistic options (I imagine but perhaps I'm wrong) are to ignore it or to leave.

    Smart.... sell advertising space and then allow your members to tell people how to block those adverts.....

    ^Actually its part of the informal T.D. information sharing. You want T & A no problem, but not exactly the way you would think a forum for Thai ex-pats and others interested in Thailand would open its Home page with advertisements for sexual partners on-call...eh? Different strokes for different folks.

    As HB said not what DD had in mind for the forum to represent.

    I was under the impression these ads were Google ads and are generated from the users past searches. So a user searching for escorts will get an escort ad and a poster searching for a gay dating site will get a gay dating site ad. Or that is what they tell me anyway.
    Treat everyone as a complete and utter idiot and you can only ever be pleasantly surprised !

    I like you HB but you are talking shite mate.

    You don't like the adds, you know how you can get rid of them, so just get rid of them, end of story.

    How the site is financed and managed shouldn't really be something that keeps you up at night.

    That's what your bladder's for.

    So doctors rank lower than car salesmen and advertisers?

    Even doctors who carry on working in emergency rooms after they have enough experience to retire to a consulting post?
