Dear Administrator/webmaster. i know sites like these need advertisements to stay afloat, but is it absolutely necessary to allow adds by dating agencies! I am not a prude, but I don’t log on here to see that!!

As I've mentioned before, Google watches to see what sorts of sites you visit, and shows you advertisements targeting those sorts of things. Everyone sees different advertisements, targeted specifically to them.

If you visit web sites about plumbing, or look up plumbing on Google or Amazon, then come here, chances are that you will be shown advertisements featuring plumbing.

If you look in the upper right corner of the "add" there is a place you can click on that you can navigate through to eliminate the unwanted "targeted" stuff.
Also once in a while you can clean out "cookies"as a part of your computer cleanup.
