I’ve just seen a pop up ad on this forum from the PC party. Surprising. Did you have to allow this Peter, or is it out of your control. Just asking.

There have been hundreds of Do you support Trudeau ads in that same space.

This site uses Google AdSense, so I don't approve ads individually. I've now turned off the "Politics" category entirely, though. Thanks for bringing this up.

Top it up - I don’t believe I’ve seen a political ad before today, that’s why I was surprised. Perhaps your device has a virus. sf-wink

Google is probably smart enough to send these to targeted areas.
The ad to which Jen refers was only relevant to Ontario, so I would guess it only appeared to Ontario residents. It's the first political ad I'd seen here too.
There were probably different ones in MB or wherever TIU lives.

Thanks for turning them off, Peter!

I have NEVER seen a pop up ad on this site. Thank goodness for Adblock!

Closing this thread, as the issue that pertains to the site has been addressed, and it's best to avoid general political discussions here.

Please write your comments in the forum.
