Not that I am complaining, but it has been well over a week since I last undertook any commercial transactions with BBO (sorry BBO), but I am still not seeing any adverts in the Flash version.

I *do* see adverts in the mobile version.

Why the diff?

Psyche (pron. sahy-kee): The human soul, spirit or mind (derived, personification thereof, beloved of Eros, Greek myth).

Do you see an ad on the login screen, or there's no ad anywhere? Normally you should see the login screen ad regardless of pay activity or not, then ads are shown/hidden only after you log in.

no ads whatsoever.

I am not consciously using an adblocker, but maybe I am - all sorts of security stuff on the machine I will hunt around.

Sounds like it. IE blocking ads, not BBO. For me ads are showing, so not sure why for your they aren't but whatever it is, it's some browser/security setting, not a BBO thing.

This is the URL for the ad in the web version, what do you see if you click on this?

I just get a blank white screen. If I click on refresh, then every half a dozen or so attempts I do get an advert in the form a centralised vertical strip about an inch wide.

It's really no biggie. Just curious is all.

Are you doing this at work? I know that my work drops most ad sites on the floor at the router, because of the extensive malware (in ads *not* on BBO, I must clarify!)

Having said that, my work also drops connections over the special BBO port on the floor at the firewall, so it's not like I can take advantage of my company that way. I'm not going to ask for a hole in the firewall for some reason!

No - at home.

That said my router at home DOES block some sites, but when it does that the place on screen that would have displayed the blocked content is replaced by a generic "blocked by Netgear firewall" message. Which is not appearing here.

Our server log shows your machine accessing the URL for the ads, so something at your end must be blocking the image.
