Default Is This Intentional?

Dont know if our American friends can see this, but, theres a new advertisment for routers appearing half way down the page, NO, not the wood variety, but, ironically computers. Perhaps this is an oversight?.....Over to you Mark and the Admin dept or have I got this all wrong? Regards......AL

It happens all the time Al, and surprisingly, such questions often get answered, we have a lot of computer savvy members.

Hey Al, the advertisements are created via Google Ads and they're based off keywords on the page so sometimes there may be some networking related advertisements.

Maybe that's why we get questions about those routers from time to time.
People see the ads and figure they're at the right place.

One way to remove those ads is filter them one by one, but I need the URLs that are being advertised.
