Yeah, maybe 3 days ago, right?  I used to have "local" ads running alongside the right side of hogville on my screen.  They no longer are there, and instead have these fake news, some are nsfw, click bait ads.

thought i was the only one. hate it. it's cheesy and is characteristic of bait click websites/sites that claim to have news, but you have to click through tons of add filled pages just to get the news.

I also hate it. Had checked for adware then realized this is the only web page I have this problem. I have also not been on hogville very much since it started. Want to keep up with my hogs so PLEASE get rid of "Ads by Revcontent", it's very annoying. Will check back tomorrow.

It most definitely has cut down on the "Time Wasted" accruals for HV. Maybe that's the goal, to get us all just royally ticked off so we don't take all the bandwidth........................................................

I wonder how much control/influence the web site owners have over the type of stuff being promoted? Or, do they just make the space available and anyone can put their links there? I've not clicked on any of these but the few times I've done this on other sites, all I got was more pop up crap and a "site blocked" notice from my anti-malware program.

I refuse to click any ads on any website.

Having said that, go ahead and pimp out a website, it detracts, especially pop ups.

I have full control.  I tried the ads at the bottom of the screen and trashed them for members.  I listen to you guys
