    They are anti-animal breeding and anti-pet. The antithesis of everything we stand for here on BYC. But they talk like they are one of us.
    Make them go away!

    Can you take a screen shot next time you see it and send it to me in a PM?

    It is because you have been looking at some of their websites. You don't need to agree with them...just visit their web sites. All the websites will track your clicks and post ads that they think relate to what you are interested in. Very creepy but that's what they do.

    It seems that these folks keep figuring out ways to get past the ad filters. When they do we need the URL that the ads come from to add it to the blocked list. In this we need the members help.

    I haven't seen it yet, but if I do see it, I will click it and report it.

    Are you talking about the humane society? Because I don't see how they are anti-pet/anti-breeding... However, if you're taking about the Pig Gestation Crate ad, then I have seen this many times. Seriously, it's advertised like every two days.

    Yes, this is the link I have been seeing frequently on this site. What is wrong with it though?
