It is important that 3DGameMan must be friendly to visitors of this website, which is why I want to bring up my concern that the ad by Google could bring in political discussion about Obama and Oil Spill.

Here's the link to the article that I saw the ad:

Please note the subtext: "Ads by Google"

This is randomized with (sometimes) keyword matching to host page. If you don't like it, talk to Google.

Interestingly enough, I kind of do blame the government for slow action, or for slow reaction, but I feel that this disaster is potentially the ultimate propaganda to get us as a country to release our stranglehold on OIL as the ultimate fuel. We do need more alternative fuel vehicles SOLD to make ethanol/methanol/methane/propane and electric more cost effective for consumers in the long run. I just hope we aren't being led around by a ring in our nose...

The real shame in the screenshot is the fact that there are TWO parallel vertical ads. What has 3GM turned into?
(Yes, I still miss the old vbulletin. I know it took a lot of work to redesign the site, but the forum is a complete mess [even when disregarding the huge amount of ads], sorry.)

We would rather have no ads at all, but these are hard economical times.
