I'm sure you're not alone. Can you do adblocker?

Maybe we seniors don't have to put up with ads...kinda like a senior discount?

Lol, wouldn't that be awesome?! On all sites. That said, I haven't seen any of these ads mentioned (and hope never to!). I am just on my iPhone, use Safari and don't use tapatalk. Just checked on my laptop. Also no ads. Again, Safari. I don't know if I have a blocker on either.

It is a shame, but everything seems to all be about money, anymore. Money, money, money! Especially in the USA.

I understand that ads are annoying. But this is an invaluable site and they deserve to have funds to run it. It’s free and mods/admin are volunteers.

The staff here are volunteers. The site is free. How do you expect them to financially run it ?

How is using advertising giving in. The staff are volunteers. The site is free. Do you know how much it costs to use the Vbulletin software and platform ? For a site with this much traffic it’s not cheap.

I definitely get that. I do wonder how PC was funded prior to Healthline taking over, though. All these years there were no ads.
