I see Google AdSense in bottom of every page. I did not see, or did not notice if it was present, yesterday. Is our forum out of budget?

I personally don't have a problem with it, initially I had thought I had gotten a virus or an exploit from my browser til I used an android device to see.

How much donation could forum use, to remove AdSense?

I see now a banner-graphic advertisement, which I consider deceitful, malicious, or underhanded. It mimics Google Chrome plug-in notification visual style, reads "This plug-in needs your permission to run [ Run this time ] [ Always run on this site ] ❌".

well, $1 mill would be nice..

reality, however, will prevent me retiring and moving to a tropical paradise populated with err, well, jane will ban me if I continue..

ok, not into begging..

the caspion ads seem to have disappeared..
about Monday I observed a few that looked like raw html code..
now, nothing is there at the bottom..

it could be that caspion has piulled them or perhaps there has been some trouble with them..
OR
maybe this is why the ads are gone..
caspion sent me a form to fill in with personal info..
I asked why and they said it is a google requirement..
I asked what use this info would be put to and the reply is google requires it..
well, screw google..
y'all know me to be a conservative libertarian kind of guy so filling in forms just kind of is something i'm uncomfortable with doing..
(the last few months the average payment has been about $25/month)
for $25 a month I can do without the ads and intrusion..

or something else might be afoot..

i'll email the caspion guy and ask whats UP..

in a further remark about the caspion ads that used to be in the footer..

i refused to allow both top and bottom ads..
so only had bottom ads..
the income from the ads was about $25/month..
i really do not like ads splashed all over so as of about end of december, those ads are now gone..
