I have been using Firefox with Adblock Plus for years. Today I tried viewing A2K with another browser (Microsoft Edge) and OMG! lots of ads! I never realised before. Of course on reflection I realise the site must get financed somehow.

@Tes yeux noirs,
Where are you seeing ads? Are you logged in when you are seeing them?

Thanks.

@jespah,
I wasn't logged in; they were at the top and bottom of each page. They seemed to be targeted for the UK market. the reason I tried to use another browser was that the A2K site seemed not to be working properly, certain links weren't working such as the 'view' link next to 'User ignored'. Maybe the site got hijacked.

I have found the url in my Microsoft Edge history. I was logged in. They are still there. I wonder if my Edge browser is hijacked?

Oh, whew. We're good. There are ads if you're not logged in. We gotta keep the hamsters in hamster chow somehow. Thanks for the clarification. Smile

I said I was logged in before when I saw the ads. That was wrong. I was not logged in.

@Tes yeux noirs,
Because you believed this site to be a 'family' affair, rather than a Business?
