Default Advertisments

Why does everyone have advertisements in their posts now?

It's kind of annoying, and it's not gonna make me buy more ****.

He is talking about all the added Google Ads that were popping in a lot of posts since the server upgrade. I was seeing them this morning, but now I don't anymore... odd.

Now?
There never was, and I dont see any ads in peoples posts?

Was Larry having a play with a vbull add-on?
It's the only reason I can this of that would cause ads to be displayed in users posts.

Cheers,

I don't, I am wondering if it was just a mistake but i did read something about some forum software getting exploited to force revenue that is why I am worried.

As tight as my browser is locked up, I don't see squat as far as ads go. I wouldn't mind clicking something interesting to help out the forum, but I ain't lowering my settings for anyone.

Got a screenshot?
