One of the perks of having a paid subscription...No ads! I hope the admins can remove them, that's not what the GRF is about.

Glad you brought that up. I mentioned it to the site owner and was told that it probably was because of some site I was clicking. Very offensive to me as I don't go on sites like that. The picture is what I saw too.

No I didn't accidently click on it. I saw it on the forum and said something to the forum owner because I thought it was offensive.

It would be funny if someone clicked on it accidental . And their spouse walked in. They would say I was on a Dog forum I swear.

That ad, I think is not controlled by the website. It's a google ad and I think based on cookies from your computer. A good example is that when I double-checked this before commenting - I got a Puffs ad and then a Tide detergent ad. Google apparently thinks I'm a housewife with a cold based on my cookies.
HA! I just spat my coffee all over! Too funny!
