I ran across a post from someone else on RCG who had seen an ad for sanitary pads, which of course set off a long discussion of how the pads could best be used in the RC hobby.

It's just odd to see ads for non-RC related stuff on this website when it's been free of them for so long. I guess if they need the $$$ from the advertising , they need the $$$. What else could it be?

We do have adsense ads throughout the site and have for a few years now. If an ad is too out of place or weird we can block it.

Personally, I don't see much
Sans when I occasionally visit this site, from another location, on another unit, that is not properly cleaned and actively filtered along with not logged in.

When using my primary unit(s), from my primary location, and logged on I don't see squat.

I am willing to say I can't say the same for othe rc sites

We can table this conversation. I was mostly interested in confirming that my computer hadn't been infested with malware.

I can live with the guy that grocery stores fear, but for what it's worth, that ad, and ads like it are widely considered to be scams (do a Google search). Probably not the kind of thing we want to see on a respected website like RCG.
