    I'm going to turn off some more ads. Major companies pulling their funding from Youtube has trickled down to start killing the small guys.
    Google has now added a small button at the bottom of the website I'm trying to get turned off as well.

    Exactly, and it has the RCF logo on the ad. If someone donates through there, does it go to you, or Google? I was surprised to see the ad since you'd just ran a donation drive recently, I was concerned you were struggling! :)

    I think only a percentage would go to google from adsense. But nonetheless it's annoying.

    I am/was getting the same cox cable survey thing popping up that Max mentioned (rather, it was replacing RCF with the survey).

    It goes to me, I think but it's turned off now, or will be shortly.

    I can't find the offending cox ad. We can't afford to turn off all of the ads but if push comes to shove, I'll take them off for members and leave them up for guests.
