I really hate those sites that show you something really interesting and when you click on the photo all sorts of really nasty things are interspersing with what you wanted to see. Usually it's something on someone posts on Facebook that lures you in. I have learned to ignore those sites too. Some can verge on porno!!

Yep, Yep, totally agree; I may have got Google to turn a lot of them off, ???, but thank goodness, they are mostly gone...

I am often afraid to click on links in ads -- there might be malware. I am not sure that is really true, but better safe than sorry. When I want to shop, we go to Amazon or to the store sites (Lowes or Home Depot or whatever).

Interesting. The only ones I get are the Red Cross at the top & a block with links to articles at DoityourselfRV. They're always the same.
While there's always some risk of getting some malware, that's mostly from emailed ads. The forum gets paid when you click on the links posted here.

One of my other interests is wooden boats. Today, on a wooden boat forum, I was amazed by the ads. All legit and quality products but still.....
