I do have an ad blocker. I see these sponsored threads in every page of the forum now.



Seems odd that you can't post a question about your dog's health in the training section without it getting moved to the right section - so why are we seeing threads about pole vaulters and wives not being daughters in any of the Golden Retriever threads? It's just ugly and cheapens the whole look and presentation of the forum as a serious place to learn about the breed.

What adblocker are you using? I use Ad Block Plus, I only see these threads when I turn it off.

The threads are Sponsored posts, they are not made by a member who has an account. There is no way for the Mod Team to moderate them.

Hello there,

Got some news on this.
These are an ad campaign that was sold incorrectly
The software that deployed these were out of date that won't allow us to retract them.
At the moment tech is working on getting them removed.
Also once the ad campaign stops, they'll be automatically removed.

Sorry everyone,

Ed
