I have a question regarding your ad banners.

I have an issue with Ads and IE6. (This is the post I have)

99.9% they are blocked by something that was installed/added to IE, but I noticed that one of your ads it's not blocked (the green one with CATAMSIA or something like that). I was wondering what is the difference between the that ad and all the others of your banner ads?

Complaining about the ads may be fun, but remember that they are what pays the bills so that you have access to a great site like TSG!

I haven't been bothered by ads since I donated, well worth it IMHO.

Sometimes get them when I use my Opera browser until I sign in, perhaps I've got some settings wrong somewhere so I don't keep a cookie, but it's a minor problem.

What I would like to know is, is there any way to donate (again) other than via PayPal?. I could use snail mail but I think a UK bank would charge too much to provide a cheque denominated in $.

If a check seems too chancy, send a money order...

Getting off the subject....

I never had a problem with the ads, it just happened. And since the green ad for TechSmith CAMTASIA Studios is the only ad that I can see, I was wondering what is the difference between that ad and all the rest and if it can resolve my dead ad situation.

As for the UK, the travellers cheque won't be that expensive since the pound is stronger than the $ (I know i'm british)

Your love having not ads here and your see faster page loads too.
For me and others that are here a lot it is the best thing Mike ever did buy having no ads show up. I say the $20.00 a year is very very cheap and I am on the start of my 3rd year of no ads and love it. :)

Last time: I DO NOT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE ADS!!! They don't bother me. For some reason or another I have lost the ability to view the ads, which in turn made my gaming on POGO dead because the gamerooms start off with an advertisement. Since the ad is not there, it can't redirect to the gameroom (scripted that way)

So if you can help me with my problem fine, but stop posting about donating to turn off the ads... I know I can do that but right now I don't mind the ads.

I never looked at the other thread on your ad troubles. Sorry I was thinking it was here you had trouble but see it is every where.

Looks like RandyG maybe right on where the trouble is.
I see your using netscape and all works ok.

I didn't say it was from TSG, I said all ads, including the ones on TSG are being blocked.
The reason that I am asking is that I downloaded something that was meant to stop unwanted ads... but it also pretty much stopped ALL ads, including the ad banners on this site.
And it wasn't a program I downloaded... It seems to be that host file RandyG that was added.
