lol, I thought this was going to be about the HUGE ******* RED BANNER on the front page advertising some net neutrality cause that even paying members are forced to see. Now THAT'S inappropriate advertising!

 That should be shown only to members from countries with no democracy, such as US or UK.

In dimension where there is no need to fight for net neutrality. Obviously.

The ads you see are from the kind of sites you visit so don't act all offended.

Actually, that's not always true.

 

I play in season long salary cap contests in Fantasy Baseball and Fantasy Football at FanTrax.com.

 

I first joined FanTrax in 2011.

 

I had joined Match.com and eHarmony.com in  January 2004, and discontinued both by August 2004.  I never went to other questionable dating sites.  Yet all that is ever advertised on FanTrax are sites like AsianDate.com, or sites to date Russians, Phillipino women, or a couple of sites where "Woman makes the first move", like I think one of them is Charmerly.com (could be off with that one).

 

I have never actually clicked any of those ads, and the computer I owned back in 2004 was long gone by 2011.  Lived in a different house in a different city by 2011 as well than in 2004, so it isn't always the kinds of sites you visit.

 

Sometimes it can be, as I have occasionally seen ads on other sites aside from FanTrax that would advertise things like chess shops, but that isn't always the case everywhere.

Net neutrality only favours the biggest hoggers of the net, I wonder who that could be?  Could it be the the American tax dodging multinationals?

Use ad-block myself.

Thought that premium membership had at least one advantage: no ads. Seems that is no longer true.

Given that the majority of chess players are frustrated males, dating sites are well-targeted.

This, basically. Silicon Valley is pushing net neutrality hard because they want to keep their costs down, and they're rallying useful idiots behind them by going on about 'muh censorship,' when nobody censors people harder than these big tech companies.

Adblock works great. There are also a couple browsers that incorporate privacy much better. Check out Brave browser.

Ironic, isn't it.

You mean like the stupid clown that wants to "Make America Great Again" by basically removing democracy?

I use Adblock, and I agree - it works great. Chess.com keeps trying to make me feel bad for using it though. tongue.png It keeps showing me the following message all of the time:
