I have accidentally bumped the "support our sponsors" links which have apparently been porn sights. What's the deal? Are you taking these sights as sponsors? If so, I am very disappointed with you guys.. What say you?

99% of the ads that come up on this site are driven by whatever your computer typically surfs.

It's the users computer that decides the ads. There are some ads specifically put there by Rick - like McMillian or CameraLand but the rest are random, generated by the cookies on your computer.

If you're getting porn - it's because the algorithms and software that runs the internet has determined that your computer has in the past visited porn or is used by a user who is likely to use porn.

Doesn't come from 24hourcampfire.

Your security is too weak. I had a computer geek look at my computer and he installed the free version of AVG security and I have not had a problem with infections since.
