<g> I would look into it for me, but then I wouldn't have known
that my site had links to nasty sites. The adsponsor mode - I
think it is called. When I noticed it happen it was one of the
spam eMails (I suppose, did not go there <g>), because it was
like "Hi, My Name is Jessica, 19. Husband not home!"
Ray, it only happens (the nasty/dirty ads x-rated ads) at times
and depending on the search criteria. I was at my clean-
funnies.com site and typed in "blonde" without the quotes. I came
up with the link above when searching my site and on the right
where the ads come up (was on the web, not my site <g>). I'm
taking it off my NoteTab page as soon as I see my FTP is back up.
I notice a big blank area in the right though now. Perhaps I
turned it off with one of the suggestions (?) in other replies in
this thread - thanks again! I may have turned if off quite awhile
ago and forget about it.
>Have a look at it. It may make your browsing a much lessThanks again. I don't click on them - it is I don't want them on
my site at all because of visitors. They don't look good either
on clean-funnies.com or my Christian sites. <g> NetCaptor blocks
out popups and unrequested links if I am at sites that have them.

- I understand. I just thought you were having a bad time when you did
searches. A neighbour of mine was terribly upset by a spam which she thought
had been sent to her personally. I've been looking at the Zoom search
engine, but it'll only do 50 pages in the free version. I reckon you'd have
a few more than that! <grin>
