    Do you use adblocker for BHW?
    I do not want to use ad-blocker for BHW...but I am mostly online here when I am at work and the sexy girls in bikini ads create awkward situation for me when someone passes by my desktop... if its nsfw avatar i scroll it down ASAP but the banners are long so I have to.

    Yup i am facing same problem as most of the time i surf bhw in my office. I don't want to block ads either but these vulgar banners makes me uncomfortable while someone is standing beside/behind me.

    I m still wondering why the SEO and other internet marketing ads need bikini models.. but then again.. the marketplace services have names like Thor, Spiderman, Sherlock holmes, God of war (kratos) etc etc... (no offense intended)

    Most Probably attractive girls are always good marketing technique but I don't know how effective that might be here..

    While using an ad blocker, one thing you can try is unsubscribe from all 3rd-party ad blocking filters and add your own rules to block those sexy ads, t0mmy will be sad though :)
    So practically every ads will be shown, but the ones you created the rules for.

    I will try that it's not that I don't like them :p sometimes my boss passes by he sees sexy girl ads and gets curious they won't understand this complicated relationship between sexy girl ads and SEO that BHW has :D

    I'm usually totally against ad-blockers because as an IM, I want and need to see new advertising/promotional ideas. But I needed to test some ad-block-detection recently and now I kept it installed in one of my browserprofiles. It's also the one I use for surfing on BHW and I don't turn it off here because
    a) I don't buy the stuff being advertised here anyway
    b) since I'm on BHW I have never seen a new/revolutionary approach to advertising
    c) boobies as a lot of others mentioned already

    Nope, I don't use Ad blockers for BHW, That's no need for BHW. No irritating Ads or Pop-up ad here. I feel comfortable when browsing.

    This ^

    It's hardly NSFW content anyways. What's wrong with a bit of cleavage? Has anyone ever been on a torrent site? Those ads are 100 times more "vulgar".

    Maybe it's just me but there's a big difference between this and porn imo. I'd still feel totally comfortable browsing the forum if someone were to accidentally glance at my screen and see that ad.

    Things change when you are at work, have kids, have employees in a very conservative country that don't know much about the internet etc pp

    I only keep adblock disabled on websites in my Niches, This Helps me to learn how others are advertising. I am not in SEO niche and therefore i have adblock enabled.
