    Probably be better posting this in the 'Anything goes' or 'General Land Rover Forum' as you'll get a bigger audience.

    I suspect running a forum of this size does have costs in both money and time that has to be raised somehow :):)

    It does, before the adds, it was running at a significant cost to the owners, I think it's still costing them, just a bit less, so thanks are due to the owners.

    No issues on my phone. Just run a couple of different add blockers, and very few adds pop up, and those that do are forum sponsors, which I don't mind.

    You clearly have no effin clue as to how much a forum costs to run. Come on here to get $$$ of free advice, and complain about a few adverts.
    This sort moaning post really gets my goat. :mad:

    Was that a departures announcement?
    If you're not going to use, don't use. No need to flounce.

    + 1 to the above. OP go look at companies house records and you will see that the forum is still costing the owners money, or at least it was the last time I looked.

    If you pay the annual fee you see no ads. It isn't a lot if you're on here regularly.

    Or Ghostery browser used to work.
