I thought Tom said a few years agao he had done something to prevent this in the future. They were public service ads or something. If they pay the bills that's fine. but come out and say "Hey community, you are going to begin seeing ads that have nothing to do with blackberrys or thier accessories. Ads that promote Ballot Propositions in states you don't even live in will become common place amongst the ads for Horizon and Office Accelerator."

i would be fine with that.

OH sorry, I didn't realize you mean on THIS site... I thought you meant in general, on TV, etc.

We'll check on those on this site. I know you might see some Google ads which Tom has no control over. Let's check.

I don't have control over them. If they are paid, they are paid. I removed the public service ads a number of years back, so the free ones are not getting through.
