I disable my AdAware and now I have sidebar pictures of "Do you want to date Arab women?" with an accompanying large botty woman looking provocatively at me just as SWMBO walks in the room and now thinks I am looking for porn.

Six months ago I was looking for a rental car, 3,000 miles away, in the Seattle area. I'm STILL getting ads to buy/lease/rent a car six months later.
Yesterday I went online to a battery website, and guess what - Today I'm seeing TWO (2) sections of REVOLVING/ANIMATED ads to buy batteries displayed on Simviation.
Luckily, the offensive ads are on the download part of SimV where I hardly go any longer. The main forum section just has static ads.
I know that you aren't by any means getting rich, Pete. And I can't think of any better way to cover your costs.
Someone suggested a "Donation Button". It might be worthwhile to try it.
Many sites that get your payment information and sign you up for life, making it an matter of having to go to your bank to stop payments for future "memberships". So I simply never do it.
Therefor I never return to the sites that require you to pay a yearly fee.
But there are three sites that I DO make occasional donations to via PayPal. But maybe that's just me.
