It's been said many times... mods, staff and admin have no control over such things.
The people that do don't appear to give a damn

Lots of trackers on this page as well. Ghostery is showing 20 of them, all currently blocked.

Its a real shame too. This site is the absolute worst for pop-up, pop-under, scrolling, floating, auto-launch video and all other forms of obnoxious advertising. It has always been horrible. This site is unusable without an ad-blocker and pop-up blocker.

It's because of this site that I installed ghostery. I couldn't stand all that stuff either and basically had to.

I'm glad I did though. It's made not just this site but many others far more usable. Not sure how I got by without it before.

There's almost always a way to turn a negative into a positive.

So thanks for the obnoxious ads survivalistboards!

That which does not kill your browser makes it stronger.

If you can set up your browser and blockers to defend against the adware on this site, you should be resistant to most anything.
