    I have question on the adds on here are they paying to put them on or do you allow them to be put on ? I stopped watching sports over this Black lives matter bullshit I'll be damned if I'm going to keep coming on this site if this is something that we are supporting here . This is the biggest hate group tearing America apart right now and will have no part of it !!!!!! I would like an answer so I can either figure out how to get the shit off so or just plain leave this site .
    Thanks

    We as moderators have no say in the advertising. I agree wholeheartedly with you tho Bear. Give me a chance to contact Admin and ask those questions. Thanks

    Couple things, Bear.

    - First, (and I'm sure TJ will confirm this or not), but the advertising you are seeing is based on your internet history. It's how internet advertisers operate these days. For example, I am seeing a Crate and Barrel advertisement, and just this morning my wife and I were on the computer looking at furniture online. When I was mower shopping last year, I would see a lot of Gravely and Husqvarna ads. You are probably seeing ads for the racial justice advocacy group Black Lives Matter (or as Trump calls it the "hate group" lol) because you have been reading a bunch of articles on most likely Breitbart and Fox News. If you start searching for mowers, you will start seeing mower ads.
    - Secondly, if you want to make the site better, you should consider cleaning up your language. If reflects very poorly not just on yourself, but also on our site as a whole community. There is a way to ask a question without profanities every other sentence.

    Hope this helps

    Kind of funny all I look at on the Internet is hunting stuff and that's all I ever see Pop Up but having said that I am definitely not settled with the situation of the United States right now but after three or four months of watching news that made me want to get up and go kick someone's ass I quit watching it and have gone back to trying to be the country boy I am I sure ain't going to spend the rest of my life where in about this mess I say work run some dogs and have a cookout y'all with me?

    Mark I don't search much other then boat stuff or hunting stuff . At this moment there is jewelry on the add and I haven't been looking at that .If it is just a pop up then I will figure something out so I don't have to see it , but if its something that is being supported then I will deal with it how I feel I got to . I'm not laying down and turning a blind eye

    I agree with you bear128 and I think 5Solas is right that the advertising that we see is based on our search history . I really don’t see much advertising here and I will not support unpatriotic companies if I can avoid it and I will not support tearing up our Constitution and people who want to turn our country into a socialist /communist country , without the freedoms that the Constitution gives every American no matter what color , sex , race or religion you are .

    God Bless America .

    I’m doubting that this site gives money Or support to the advertisers. I’m thinking the site gets money from advertisers in one way or another .

    It is most likely a little bit of both standard advertisement (eg. Febreeze), and internet history-based advertisement (eg. mowers that you looked at).

    I only see ads when I view the site on my phone and not on my pc. I use Firefox Browser on my PC and I downloaded an add-on called AdBlock Plus. You can google how to add it to your browser. It is free and safe. This blocks pretty much all ads on most websites.

    I did it because I was getting a whole bunch of ads on my work pc internet from stuff my wife was buying on Amazon. My wife bought some new swimwear online and whenever I would open my browser at work to check the weather or baseball scores or RabbitDogs, there would be bikini girls on my screen! I am a Christian man and I don’t want to be looking at that stuff, plus I ain’t getting fired over some ad on my internet!

    AdBlock Plus worked great for me, but there are plenty of other ones out there that are legit and work too. None of them should cost money.

    Understand guys we get the same thing as you do!! We don’t like it either. The owners of the site charge for advertising in order to keep this site running. That’s business! Im not taking up for them just saying give us some time and stay civil in discussions. I have sent a request in to Admin but havnt heard back yet. Thanks for understanding guys!! We all want the same thing here. Like we have said earlier We want this site to be the model for all other sites and forums no matter who looks at it. Thanks again for your patience.

    Fella's pray that we all can get along and leave the politics and PR experts off this site, which I have come to enjoy . All sites get a kick back from advertisers , but 90% of what pops up is from what you have search previously . Please do not throw race in your comments the only color I love to see is that of your hound all else doesn't matter. We are all dog men and God bless each of you !!!

    I learned many years ago that in times of trouble that you should plan for the worst and Pray for the best. So planning for the worst, what would happen if this site was shut down? I don't know of another one that I could go to that is as user friendly and where we can have so many friends that we ain't even met. As Brother Dave Gardner said " a stranger is just a friend you ain't met yet". TJ is right. Everything comes with a price. I don't know but I do suspect that these ads are paid for by the ownership. So let's measure the good vs. the bad. I don't even read the ads. I read what my friends I ain't met yet have to say. I don't know of a single place on the internet where you could go and find as many blue blooded Americans as we have here. We may disagree on many things about our dogs running style/achievement, however, I can't remember ever seeing one single anti-American comment on this site. At this difficult time in our country we need to stick together. We may need to overlook a thing or two in order to stay united. Additionally, I have never seen an anti-Christ statement by anyone on this site. My office in my home has all of the walls covered with pictures of family members in their military attire. The focal point, however, is a properly folder American Flag given to my family in honor of my brother who lost his life in WW II. Atop the triangle are the words "God", "Country", on one side, and "Family" on the other. Those are the first things I see when I come in to get on the computer and pull up rabbitdogs.net. They are the priorities that direct my life.

    I can deal with the negatives in life as long as I follow my priorities. I can rest well at night knowing that on top of all else is God who controls all things eternal. So let's all stay positive and just kick aside the negatives that pop up from time to time.
