    That is an easy fix: QRZ is free so you accept the ads, but if you become a subscriber you can eliminate the ads if you want.
    Simple, subscribe, QRZ is a great resource

    I seldom even notice them.

    Ya know, I could be wrong, but I think the ads are at least partly targeted based on what else you browse with your device. I have seen an ad or two for local restaurants. So if you're getting offensive stuff......

    I thought Facebook had always had ads?

    I use it extensively, and find friends who don't annoying. It's like they just drop off my radar and I never know what they are up to or doing. Any events I plan I set up a Facebook event - and there's always some troglodyte who doesn't use it so I have to invite them separately, via email. ;) I do use "Fluffbusting Purity" plug in to my browsers for Facebook on the PC. They used to call it "Facebook Purity" until FB made them change the name. But in any event it allows ad blocking among many other useful things like forcing your news feed back to chronological order instead of that incredibly stupid algorithm that Facebook uses to decide what is "top" and always re-sets your feed to. Also alerts you when someone unfriends you. ;)

    Paid subscribers don't see them.

    What are these "offensive ads" being referred to? o_O

    Ads come from where you browse.

    Browse porn, Get Russian woman, They are nice to see you. :oops:

    It took a long time clearing my cookies after buying a nightgown for my wife. :)

    I liked the ads while they lasted. :D

    Yup, the XYL will be really happy to see what comes bk to you via spam too after an adult viewing excursion, even one time.
    Speaking of spam, I began blocking the spam and fake web-sites email adresses a year ago and my spam is WAY down now.
    Use the block feature on your email account, it works vy well...

    So that's why I am getting ammunition adds and gun related t shirts. I was curious.
