Am I the only one getting the above red banner at the top of this page???

And, just how, pray tell, am I disabling them--I have all I can do to just post, etc.

WTF?

I think he is just saying this does not belong in the "Extract Brewing" forum. Maybe "Feedback" forum would be more appropriate.

I think you will get this banner if you are running "Adblock" (as an add-in for Firefox in my case.) Personally I don't mind the ads (help support the site and all), but I added those banners to Adblock b/c there was ad that was either really annoying or inappropriate for work. I have turned the Adblock off to try it out for a while.

I don't have adblock on my computer and still get the "Disabled Ads" message. The reason it shows is because I do not have Flash installed here at work. If you don;t have Flash you don't see the ads so you get the message..

I posted about his last week but apparently is was too "sensitive" so they deleted the thread.

Heck, just ignore it. Eventually it blends in and seems just like the rest of the board. Been seeing it for a week now and I think I'd miss it if it went away.

Yeh, yer right!

Recently, me wife got me a small squirter of WD40--I had a bathroom door w/a mild squeak--I miss that squeak now; especially around 0400 when I check the e-mail...
