    HowTF did ADV get to the point of flacking window blinds in the paid ad cycle? Is it a millenial trend in offroad biking that I'm not getting?

    Hey, here in Oz we're getting online betting ads, so it must mean that Australian riders are a bunch of gamblers (other than by riding motorcycles...).
    Got to love online advertising programming.

    Oh no - that really sucks!:jack

    I don't mind the ads, and appreciate the need for them - just find the choice that the internet chooses for us to be funny!

    Now it's an electric, self-propelled lawn mower. Now that's something I can get behind!

    Oh, I break me up!

    I'm sure there has been extensive research done on the effectiveness of these types of ads on social media and online magazines...otherwise they would no longer exist. But seriously, who clicks on these links, ever? In fact, who even notices what the ads are for? After years of seeing this garbage I imagine most of our brains have evolved to tune them out. Sure does fuck up a good forum though. :thumb

    I’m seeing great prices on flights from the Madison, WI airport. Monetizing is a beautiful thing. :photog

    About an hour ago, I googled a part number for a handle return spring on my DR wood splitter.
    Now I am seeing an ad for a new Boss Log Splitter.
    Not complaining just stating facts.
