OK, does anyone else find this weird?

I was reading a thread when I looked up and saw an ad asking me to guess how old Jesse McCartney is in order to get a free ringtone.

Need I say more?

Wrong forum dude. Try Site Feedback. There's already a thread for this problem.

But use a progream called AdMuncher. Google it

Understandable. It's just a little ironic.

I'm still waiting for someone to answer the question... How old is Jesse McCartney??


...But seriously, why would anyone know/care


And.. wrong forum. If you have ad issues, https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=116582
^That's the Bad Advertising Reports thread.

Read the rules though, the Free Ringtone thing wouldn't apply to the rules. But there's the link anyway.

Like has been mentioned - this is a free website. Thus, they need to earn money from somewhere, and if it's not going to come from it's users, it has to come from ads. Suck it up, banner ads are hardly an issue.

If everyone did what you just did there would be no more UG.

Jesus, if you like this site, and want it to remain free, never use adblock, in fact click on the ads once in a while. They're only banner ads for **** sake.

^I sometimes play the games, like Outdrink the Frat Boy, or Knock out Paris or Catch the Criminal or whatever. Sometimes it redirects, but hey, who cares. It's not damaging my computer, and if it is I can always report it and help the Ruskies remove dodgy ads from the site.

I don't see people's problem with banner ads, it's the pop-ups which are the pain in the arse.

I absolutely couldn't agree more.

It's only the slightly erotic ones that bother me. That's why my sig is campaigning for a NEW erotic ad that EVERYONE would like.
