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...

Have fun, be safe! Sláinte!

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.
