    Angry #BoycottMazda

    Thanks to the extremely annoying Mazda advertising topics that seem to be all over this site, I will NEVER consider a Mazda for myself nor will my three sons.
    This kind of forced advertising is completely uncalled for. I don't mind the banner ads at the top of the thread area. First there were the banners for UNICEF and now the Mazda topic ads.

    FYI the Moderators and the admins are aware of this problem and are working on getting this stuff removed. Hopefully soon.

    I run the Ghostery and Adblock browser extensions. I don't see ads, big or small.

    The Admins should determine when the Mazda ads started to appear on this site and send Mazda a hefty bill for the advertising then use the money to enhance this site and harden it so this sort of thing can't happen again or use the money to fun this site's existence for quite a few years.

    These ads appear to be normal topics on the site. They are always the first non-pinned topics and they are in almost all forums of the site.
    There are a few from Honda also.

    I seem to be running an ad blocker. I didn't even know it. I never see these ads.

    I understand how annoying ads can be. I will not eat at Sonic because of the freaking moronic "two idiots in a car" ads. Seriously, do they think watching two people whose combined IQ doesn't reach the tire pressure in one of their wheels is going to make me want to eat there? Come to Sonic, the restaurant for cretins? Too. Annoying. For words.

    I use FireFox for my browser and DuckDuckGo for my search engine and have no advertising appearing on the TaurusArmed Forum period...

    I wasn't aware of the ads until somebody else brought them to my attention. My Ad Blocker plus really does a nice job, and it's free. As already said, the owners have been made aware and it's being worked on.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    I don't see any ads other than from Brownell's which offers a 10% discount and those I don't mind.

    I never see the ads on this forum- I use Ublock Origin for Firefox.

    I can not live with the ads.



    Edit: AND....I dumped windows years ago for Linux. I use Ubuntu Mate.....I have not had a computer issue since 2008.
