Thread Name: BS: Spam and Porn - how to get rid of it?
Subject: RE: BS: Spam and Porn - how to get rid of it?
If the advice posted here is seen as "hilarious" by a self-reported technologically advanced reader who visits the links we post and finds (horrors!) popup ads, one wonders why that reader hasn't bestirred himself to get some ad blocking software by now? The sites I posted were simply examples of the area where art has been appropriated by porn ads, with plenty of warning from me that there could be popups! Unfortunately, erotic art has been almost totally co-opted by the porn folks, as an avenue for getting ads on the screens of folks who wouldn't go looking make the transistion from the merely salacious to the outright lascivious.
I also wonder why, if "BS" threads are such an apparent abomination on a music site, he continually dips his oar in these waters below the equator?
