I use a ad blocker, but it doesn't work with these ads. For me, it's NOT the ads that appear at the top and sides of the page - that's a normal occurrence. It's the ads that are DISGUISED as actual subject posts that I'm concerned about. They reside with the legitimate posts. They cant be removed, even by a moderator or administrator, they can't be replied to - they just sit there and take up space. I know of three other gun forums, all owned by vBulletin Solutions, that are experiencing the same thing. Won't be long before the gun forums will be nothing more than advertisements. Like TV.
