Thumbs down When did we become Ads.org?

Okay, so the site was down for three days, but when it came back, it was slow to load and full of ads on every page and post. Have we been hacked or is this a way to offset the cost of the site?

Yeah I know what you mean! The ads are a bit much! I am glad to see that the site seems to be better today! I just have to remember to put the Adblock on! Let’s hope that the site will continue to work really well from here on in!

Siri's been listening, LOL! Not to mention Big Brother, the Russians, Chinese, North Koreans, Iranians, Israelis, EU, Jeff Bezos and probably the frigging Grays too. That's why I got a Kyocera folding phone like all the billionaires and dealers use. It can't be tracked. It's the only cell phone in the world that isn't made in China. Plus, it's waterproof too. It was originally designed for "contractors" to use while overseas.

Let me know if you're ever in Charleston. My daughter plays music around town every weekend. I'll buy you a drink. No escorts though....

Speaking of my daughter, I showed her Snarkie's machine gun wielding cat (while she was playing) to see if she wanted that thing to be the face of Cat Strickland Music. The jury's still out...
