anti hunting google ads

Can the site control what ads show up here?

A google ad just popped up showing a dead wolf with blood in the snow asking for donations to the Sierra club to stop the hunting of wolves.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Sierra club =wolves among the sheep . Amazing how many people think they are a hunting advocacy group. Yuppies.

No. It was on the home page of the message board. I did a double take when I saw it. Have not seen it again, yet.

Re: anti hunting google ads

How come I don't see any sidebar on the right? No ads, no nothing, all forum. (which is good)

Any headway with this? Something that is controllable or not.

Re: anti hunting google ads

It's very controllable. You turn your side bar off and you won't have to see it.

I doubt it is controllable. Those adds
Help pay our bills so in reality they are supporting us hunters. That's how I chose to look at it.
