I usually don't have any ads that are too bad on the sides of my images, just the regular weight loss, medical ads etc you get from free services like this.

I always choose FAMILY FRIENDLY as they are just pics of brushes, razors etc...but I uploaded a pic today, must have clicked ADULT CONTENT by accident and when I clicked on the thumbnail (which I had linked into a TSN thead)...needless to say it was not Family Friendly and started getting popups in the corner of my PC for "wanna F, I'm in your town" etc....YIKES

A few people standing at attention if you know what I mean Rolleyes

Just a friendly reminder/warning...Wow that was an eye opener


these type are ok and quite funny actually

Hey, Bruce...Oops!!!!!!!!!!! Laughing1

All kidding aside, don't you have a pop-up/ad blocker? Many are free and they have all but eliminated the problem you describe.

I do, but the ads on Postimage are not really Pop Ups, more side ads etc.

the one in the corner I was surprised to see though.

I switched to W8 yesterday, so am still configuring all my extra programs etc.

I'm still trying to figure out how they got a pic of me coming out of the pool Tongue

I'm sure every lady on the Internet is drooling and your wife is standing right by your side with a rolling pin over your head. 24

AdBlockPlus for either FireFox or Chrome is a good start, but I found that DoNotTrackMe also works wonders in cleaning up excess crud from web-pages - as well as making you harder to track, off course Biggrin

Hans, thanks for the information about this. It looks good. I already use Adblock Plus and it's great so using DoNotTrackMe looks like it would complement ABP very nicely.
