    I don't get it... but I block all ads. Hate them with a passion. I wish my school had adblocks.

    Why don't you block ads? Surfing the internet is so much nicer without them.

    If I squint at the circled images I can see why you'd be, erm, curious (?) about those images on a small screen :lol:

    Your kidding? The WiiChat ads are so awesome. Particularly so, when Liger influences them to be things like Russian Sexy Women who want to marry you ads. Before that he had the Arab women. Oddly enough I have never noticed Asians though.

    I always need a good greeting card now and then...The ads help me.

    I don't think they're annoying, just there.

    i leave them on for the lulz.
    the IQ banners kinda irritate me because they use celebrity faces in ads.
    is it illegal to do that without their permission? -- it is for profit.
    ..or are IQ ads treated similar to a gossip tabloid magazine?

    IQ ads prolly list fake stats for the celebrities too.. lol.

    I think they're allowed to do it (ss long as they don't pretend said celebrities endorse their product/service), otherwise how would tabloids operate?

    Most of the celebs wouldn't mind. The ads put the IQ higher then they actually are anyway.
