Re: Minimise Banner Ads from appearing

I already have AdBlock installed, but if every user and guest of EF used AdBlock, where would the commercial owners revenue come from?

From those ignorant ones who never used an AdBlocker ?? Or those who deliberately removed their AdBlocker as they wanted to read those Ads for ... removals, expat services etc.

Personally I click on the banner adds as often as possible hoping that the revenues will eventually trickle down to us Mods..

I agree with Grumpy, and suggest that the thread be deleted in the interest of long term survival of EF.

I intentionally never mention AdBlock on any ad-supported forum.

Re: Minimise Banner Ads from appearing

Kind of odd for a mod to be telling people, unsolicited, how to block ads which fund the revenue of this place, keeping it alive.
