Hi Phil,

Although I don't like the adverts, especially now they are more intrusive, I appreciate they are necessary to pay for the forum.

The only real gripe I get is some of them are pornographic which is worrying when my daughter occasionally uses my phone.

Thanks,

Owain
Basically this, apart from the daughter thing.
It wouldn't be too bad if it was 3 women in the advert.
previous- 205 gti, 306 gti, 309 gtiGoodwood, S3, S4 V8 avant.
Now- C5 RS6 Misano red avant. Getting close to how I want it.

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there!

One of these guys on here posted a screen shot of the 3 same-sex individuals in the advert. Not something I was expecting to see while reading about a cambelt change.

I've blocked all "Sensitive Categories", although those that were unblocked should not have resulted in the ads that people are seeing.

Please send me a screenshot of any offending ads Phil@RS246.com

I think it's been cached by Google. Hopefully the cache will get refreshed and it will disappear. Not a lot else I can do right now. Let's give it a week and see if it goes.

Are you still “wanting” screen shots of the porn adds. I get these adds on at least every other post. 🤦‍♂️

I for one would happily subscribe to the forum. I pay £25pa for my 300zx website that I’m a member of.

I nearly didn’t join this site because of the adds and in all honesty I’m not going to suffer them too much longer. Please let’s have an option for now adds as it’s a great site and will be a shame to leave it.

Yes, please send the screenshots. There shouldn't be any porn ads.

Appreciate your feedback regarding subscription. Busy with day job so it's not been a priority but will try to find time to research.
