I fully agree with the fact that no political or economic issues should discussed within this website, however, it confuses me that every ad that I see is political. This is contradictory and goes against the principals of this website. Please explain to me the reason for this…
Again I would like to add that I do not believe there should be any economic or political discussions being held. I do think this is a valid concern. Correct me if I am wrong.
You got some good answers already so I’ll just drop this in as confirmation - ads are not chosen by BALG personally, they keep the forum free for us all as well, it gets a tremendous amount of traffic from non-members who just swing by to read or run some searches for the material they need.
Timothy did clarify this and also provided some suggestions if you need to block the ads:
Also, the ads are heavily targeted, I bought some jewelry over the holidays for a family member and now I see a dozen ads for rings every time I get on here - I have to assume that if you’re seeing political ads, it’s because you look at political stuff online? Maybe you can clear your cookies or something to get the ads to refresh to something different
Edit: I’m on iPhone, this won’t necessarily apply to desktop or Android users, but I’m sure you can do a quick search for your device to figure out how to do it
