Free RV park Directory

Quite a few times when I log on to iRV2 there is an add that pops up at the top of the page headlined "Free RV Park Guide"
I can assure you this is anything but "Free".
The so called guide they are selling is a farse. If you call the CGs in the guide and ask about the advertised Discount they will tell you they have never heard of this outfit or if they have they do not want to associate with them any longer.

I have a question for the iRV2 site moderators: Is there nothing you can do to stop outfits like this from accesing iRV2?

I got stung by this site one of the first times I logged into iRV2 because I assumed it was a legitimate site sanctioned by iRV2. There have been many threads warning of this advertisement but it still seems to come up on a regular basis.
Just Saying,,,,

Love my adblock add-in for Firefox. Don't have to put up with a lot of these crap ads.

The ads are from Google and are individualized based on your internet browsing habits, so IRV2 has no control over the content. And other members are undoubtedly seeing different ads than you are. As with any ad, "caveat emptor".

I'd bet if your browsing habits were adult sites they would sure find a way to block them.
