Annoying Ads


#1

:frowning: I dislike the NuvaRing Birth Control ads posted on or in the middle of airline tracking maps. Is there a way to delete any and all advertising interfering with flight tracking displays?

You can sign up for the Flightaware VIP account for the low low price of $999 per week.

:laughing: Righttttttttttttttttt!


#4

Send all checks payable to wazzu90 C/O FA offices in Houston, TX. Please include $20 surcharge for payment processing/fuel/western union. :smiley:

Now we’re talkin!

Yes there is. When you go to FlightAware.com, click on the “X” in upper right hand side of the window.

I’ve always though the NuvaRing ads were funny - not in a ha-ha way but because the vast majority (90%? 95%?) of FlightAware members probably won’t have a need for the device.

89%

That ad amuses/confuses me with their targeting too… perhaps their theory is men will talk to their SO about it?

LOL :stuck_out_tongue:

Ahhh! :laughing: Classic dami response.

Yes, buy a PC. That way you too can enjoy slower speeds and a stupid Vista popup asking for permission to do what you just told it to do :imp: :imp: every time you actually try to do something other than IM or listen to music :exclamation:

That was my CB “handle” back in the day. My Catholic HS and college educated wife eventually made me change it once she caught on. Only took her a few years. :laughing:


#14

What 1973-4 ish?

Edit: More like 1977 (Smokey and the Bandit days)


#15

You were right the first time, starting in 70/71 right through around '75.

I got started with CB in the early '60s as a precursor to getting a HAM license. It was a CAP thing.

Control panel - Security Center - Other Security Settings - User Account Control to turn that annoying thing off. However, you will still get a pop-up when you start Windows saying check your security settings. Just ignore it and it will go away.


#17

Weird cause all I have to do is turn my Mac on and not mess with anything. It’s not like Windows at all.


#18

Or try a linux flavor. No need to be hampered by the forced choices of an apple or a pc, but free to try all sorts of new programs and functionality. Or just don’t go with a poorly-designed, and bloated OS like Vista, and stick with a ok-designed, slightly less bloated os like XP.

Also, if your having trouble with ads, I’d reccommend firefox as a browser. But do realize Flightaware provides a fantastic service, and blocking any ads they rarely seem to have only hurts you in the long run.

I don’t mind the ads at all on this site. Fact is I click through on a lot of the sponsored links and some of the banners when I get bored. Then again, I can’t seem to pass an infomercial either while I am scanning on Sunday morning. Love that Magic Bullit infomercial.

I’m partial to anything Ronco myself. And I also click whenever chance arises.
