Really mind boggling...
Can you "Save as.." the resulting page, rename it to .txt and attach it here?

That explains a lot - the list of sponsors is empty. Just a string of <li><big><bold> </bold></big><br>

I assume this page is dynamically created? Something isn't right.....

If I go to the Sponsors link at the top of the page, I get the Sponsor list.

I suspect the firewalls are binning the 'ads' because the links look are all in the format "sp.php?sp###".

Ok, another shot at the problem. Try to reload the page and see if the list is there now.

P.S. Sorry for repeating "try and see" requests, I don't have ad blocking software installed...

I stripped all formatting tags from the page. Lets see if it counts as "ad" now:

Ridiculous... maybe it is "/sponsors/" in URL that is triggering ad block?
What about this: https://www.rcgroups.com/pages/list.htm ?

Now this is REALLY weird way to block ads (removing all links from suspected page)!

Anyway, sponsor list URL changed to https://www.rcgroups.com/pages/splist/
