Impressive advertising. I suppose porn pop-ups are next.

The links don't work. Non-existent advertising, I like that.

As CuppaJoe said, your links don't work, but if you're referring to the banner ads, I think Google controls those. I don't know how much latitude the site owner/administrators have to control that content.

Were these the Kiyosaki banners? If yes, the board has no control over it since Google determined it was a good fit. Of course, look at this this way, Kiyosaki is subsidizing the board.

Hmm, I know some people who might actually visit the boards if they could be assured of porn pop-ups

Aren't the ads also controlled by some of your cookies, so if you don't like an ad it's based on something you or someone else using your computer viewed in the past.

I am not aware of any advertising on this site. I do not recall reading nor clicking on any, though I presume that they are always there. I am not a very good target for the banner ad folks, I suppose.
