    Sorry guys I just couldn't resist. At the top of the page (here) there was a little guy you got to blow up. I blew him up & it took me to "Get a free I P O D in 3 easy steps!" I about laughed myself off my chair. You just can't escape from the little buggers can you? :eek: :p

    It's like the spam you get in your mobile phone inbox - giving away an IPOD - y'know, just phone this hugely expensive premium rate number and the organisers, just sort of , don't send you the prize!!!

    Watch out for the links on the top of the page.. Every once and a while I get a "Your current security settings prohibit activex on this page from being displayed correctly" from having pages known to carry spyware and malware blocked. :(

    I was at one point assuming that Mike was in charge of the ads that went up here & then a few months ago someone mentioned that they are just There. I just got a kick out of it... we just got rid of (most of) the spammers & then "they" found another way in!
    You can run, but you can't hide!

    Lisa you need to get a hosts file and then you will not see any ads.
    I paid to have the ads turned off here and love it.
    But I can also come here if I log out and I don't see any ads because I block them with my hosts file. :D
    Now the page layout is better with the ads turn off still so I will still pay to support the site.

    Yeah, I always MEAN to donate, but then, there come flat tires, dentist bills, Christmas..... and the list goes on! The ads actually don't bother me. I tune them out like the kids noisy toys.

    Did any one here win that Plasma TV that was put forward as a prize? Or was it a scam?
