I see several kind of ads if I am not logged in, including the postrelease ads. I do not see many ads when I am logged in. Only the ones at the top and bottom of the forum. My guess is the company that runs this board is trying to encourage more visitors to join. If any ads are not to anyones liking send those to Yung. Maybe a screen shot of it as well. I am not able to do anything about ads here.

Rob, I sent a PM to Yung. I find a car/tire ad in the Bridge section repulsive. Almost like if Walmart put stickers on the gravestones to drum up business. If a private sponsor selling cremation boxes wants to put a thread in there, that "might" be ok with me. JMHO.

Anne, I will give you my input per your original post later.

About an hour after my last post in this thread I saw yet another different one in the RB section. Different view count and title, screenshot below. The next time I looked it had gone back to my first screenshot I posted (226 views) must be on a cycle.

What in the world do cars have to do with the passing of our beloved friends?

They must be on a rolling schedule because the Hot Women thread disappeared and then it came back. I will borrow off your question--what do cars/tires and hot women have to do with our dogs and why post something that demeans and objectifies a good portion of our forum members? You can bet I'm not going to consider Nitto Tires in the future based on the obnoxious threads promoted on this forum in all the different sections. In essence, the inappropriate advertising is actually costing them potential sales.

Send a PM to Admin. and that's Yung. Go under the community link and search the Member's List for Admin--that's how I was able to send him a PM.

I watched one of the videos and it didn't actually talk about girls or really show any. It was just a bunch of cars drifting around (which is cool if you ask me haha but doesn't make much sense to be on a dog forum)
