no wonder you get all these warnings when you try to log on here.

the board has turn into that seedy little tavern on the sidestreet corner, smoked filled with a poll table and tatooed patronage you really rather not venture into on a school night.

Maybe you should get your little mangina out of here and get home before dark, clean and safe out in planet suburbia...before you get hurt.

I really don't notice the ads.....God forbid Janine takes on some ads to help pay for this site.....I'm sure they barely cover the raw costs involved in keeping the site running and she gets nothing for all the hours she puts in babysitting and such......I guess I should 're-read the Constitution, I didn't realize an ad-free horse racing message board was head shake guaranteed by our forefathers

I thought this thread was ridiculous.  It is... but the Mucinex *audio* ads are a bit MUCH.  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Galloping out Thoroughbred rescue, those charlatains.   I hear you brother, you wouldn't want to know about the good work that group does or drop them a few sheckels.

I hate to contribute to a Secretariat thread with a cogent comment.  It is amazing how when you visit a commercial website, an ad for that website suddenly appears on my version of BTW.  I was checking out a hotel in California this week and, of a sudden, there is the ad for it right above the more natural Galloping Out ad.  These ad guys are able to track and target us all over the place.  I hope Janine gets at least something out of these advertisers.

I wondered why I was getting all those Victoria's secret pop ups.   Their line seldom lifts and holds the way I like.

Dan - are you one of the two people spying on me?   I am not paranoid..............................people are just out to get me.

Keeping 100 misbehaving juveniles in line every day is just a hobby.

Sure it was: a direct refutation to a comment made likening the Forum to a seedy little tavern.

Now, what on earth does it matter to this discussion if Janine has a job or not, and either way -- what of it?

Perhaps you could justify your query, rather than act like you got your wittle butt hurt, aww...

Hey, anything that helps distract from your ham-handed inquiry into Janine's employment status...

If it helps Janine run the site and hopefully make some money for having to put up with some baby sitters I am all for it.
