Yep works a treat for firefox. Thanks for the tip. Also agree with the standpoint sometimes the stories were good, but mid thread its just annoying.

I would like to thank cyclingnews for adding those ads. It makes every thread look like the BoB thread (minus the bike mostly, so really more like a B thread, where B stands for babes (or boobs it seems)). Again thank you very much. I assume Susan is behind this?

Ironically, the worst effected thread is this one.
Almost unfathomable.

I think the adverts are not so bad... well some of them, I have clicked a few :S but to have them in the middle of thread looks terrible and is very annoying, strange choice of links too :S

Wow, Lance right next to a huge Prostata.

But those fake-out panties are really retarded. You can't fool me.

Members can't put off topic comments in the middle of threads, so why put off topic ads? Ban them.

That's the beauty of it. Scantily clad chicks (with or without bike) will NEVER be off topic anymore, regardless which forum or thread.

Works perfectly.

Just add:

to your manual filters.

Gone.



Thanks, worked a treat.
The fact is, no one has done more to make doping in sports seem like an evil than Lance Armstrong in his prime, desperately, passionately, ferociously guarding the perception that he was clean.

Totally irritated at this today! glad to find the thread and compatriot outrage. I really dont care to look at Kim K and all the other cra**y stuff in the middle of the forum posts..(or anywhere actually)

I clicked on the little box and found the mssg from outbrain, considered sending an email but afraid I might end up with something worse from visiting that site...:confused:

Will try the chrome thingie..thanx boomcie.

can't CN just refuse to deal with some of this ad stuff??

Ok now I'm really pi$$ed off. I don't get titty ads. I get all kinds of other crap but no tits. I really, really hate this. Equal opportunity, please. Give me the titty ads or drop this stupid feature altogether!
