Also, I find that the ads are usually my google searches.
Agree, agree and agree.

In my case, Twitter isn't better than TL when it comes to fights. I have been blocked by some nice ladies, just because they didn't like what I said on my timeline. You can find them everywhere, not just here. And don't let me start on IK!

I've made some great friends here too. And I didn't even speak with some of them on any thread, but instead we share other things in common, which is great!

I'm using IE and also my ads are my google searches, which made me sad for a while (you know, Ticketmaster and Stubhub, and travel ads).

Yes, some people are so ultra sensitive. And you're right the Twitter fights I've seen make this place look like Disney.

On IG someone posted Clinton because he is hosting. I saw the word rapist pop up. oy.... People are crazy.

It's taken me two days to get connected to the Ledge. Ironically, I can only do this at work. So, for anyone saying the slowed system is what's preventing more posts, I entirely agree.

It seems to be getting worse IMHO.
That is my problem, only it takes up to 10 minutes to get to the Rumours Thread after reading a post. I don't have the time or patience for that, so I visit much less.

I'll definitely make some time to update my browser, see if i need newer ad blocking stuff.

Fleetwood Mac is many groups with one rhythm section and almost endlessly fascinating to me. So many unique and high quality artists throughout the whole history. Even someone I might get along with least if they ever cared enough to post here about any aspect of any of the line-ups we have in common that we appreciate some of the same things, we're all sort of related no matter what. You only see that with a few long-running groups, like The Grateful Dead. It's woven into your life and you cannot really leave the chain?

How much does it cost to date one of
these Russian ladies that advertise
on this site?

And does the owner of this site have
something against Asian ladies?

95% of the time, I have NO problem getting on here. No lag or anything. On phone or computer.

This isn't the online world that it was 15 years ago, and(unfortunately) the ledge(or any other band site) will ever return to the glory that it once was.

That said, I hope it's still around for a long time to come.

You know that your ads are targeted based on your browsing history?

If you havenít been searching for Russian Wives or P0rn then maybe youíve been. Reading too many stories about Russian Collution theories.

Why don't you hit 'em up and find out? You only live once.

All I'm getting at the moment is School of Rock tickets, Lake District holiday cottages and XBox paraphernalia- I'm guessing my step-son has been on my computer recently. If Russian ladies pop-up he's in trouble.

Haha! I'm getting travel ads, FM eBay articles, and concerts ads. Never ever an obscene ad pop up on my computer when I log in. Yep, I'm a saint.

I watch porn ALL THE TIME, and I don't get sex ads on here.

What am I doing wrong?
