Is anyone else extremely frustrated with googles ad tatics? I feel like they just recently changed it so the ads will pop up a couple seconds after the search results appear just when I am about to click on the result I want but instead I click on some craptastic ad link instead. Its making me so frustrated

About all you can do is buy a membership. As a business owner, I hate Google ads. They are run by a pack of lying swine that will do everything in their power to drain your ad account dry.

The adds are annoying but I deal with them because google provides a lot of free services.

Why don't you just block the ads? I do it with a firefox add on app.

Because this robs homebrewtalk.com of its advertising dollars.

Not sure you noticed that when you block the ads here, they get replaced by a notice 'please whitelist homebrewtalk.com so it stays online'.

I don't get ads on here anyway since I'm a premium supporter, but if I'm not logged in I don't get any such message. All banner ads and google junk is just gone, no messages.

Glad I use the homebrewtalk android app on my cell and tablet. I barely even notice the ads.
