What's with the ads??

I bought the premium membership a few years back to get rid of the ads on here, Now I see a Tire Rack ad on the top ( I could deal with that) and the google ads going down the right side.

Got the ads also. I logged off then back on and no change. Tried different browsers and even types of phone - iPhone and android all the same. Maybe they think it's a bonus for being a premium member.

Well everyone knows that it IS all about money these days... And not just here. Every time that I search for something, anything, and then go on to other sites I get adds promoting what I was searching for. You can't get away from it anywhere!
I have gotten where I don't even notice the ads anymore on here, I had to look for them when I read this thread.

I use adblock on firefox and almost never see ads, although i do see that tire rack ad. Nothing along the sides though.

I have it too. The one ad takes about 20% of screen width which stinks. On both the iPhone and droid tablet. Stu

Nick, I installed the adblock, I don't have the ads there now, but I still have the screen reduced with a blank where the ads were. So it is for sure a site added ad space,
