    I'm talking about some click-on advertisement right in the middle of this page for some dating website with the four well endowed women on the banner. Jesus mods...Not complaining... its just a far cry from your typical..."Pride In Every Pellet" jibberish!

    Got to be careful what ya post you never know who buys what words for advertising purposes. The ad systems just match up what they find on a page to what they have for advertising space bids. You see the end result.

    Maybe it's because of your other job:

    The site that I'm a Mod. on has been under attack from SPAM since November, I delete from 100-400 a day. I'm surprised it's taken this long to hit this site. We have been getting it from overseas mostly.

    Site profile likely says old men with money frequent hearth.com hence that particular ad.

    Alexa has this to say:
    Based on internet averages, hearth.com is visited more frequently by males who are in the age range 55-64, have no college education and browse this site from home.
