So, I see the ads have gotten a little out of control.

I am usually fine with ads. I totally get that they help fund the team, and I am all for that. They never really bother me as long as they aren't blaring sound, aren't auto-playing video, and aren't virus-ridden.

But all the ads with the half-naked women and bouncing cartoons advertising "sexy games" is way too much. I shouldn't be afraid to visit the website for what passersby might see. It makes the website look really smutty.

@balder, If possible, please find another ad provider that won't flood your website with pornographic ads.

    Err, there are no ads on Erfworld site. You have virus on your computer or some sort of malicious browser addon.

    I can see them too. My favorite so far is the sexy orc girl. Not that I'm actually paying attention to them or anything. ;)

    Having written a fanfic about hostile ads invading Erfworld never stops feeling like a timely / timeless and relevant call. :P ;)

    Yes, the "Sexy Online Game" or the "Sexiest Game You'll Find" ads are wonderful while at work.

    @balder, They are getting worse. I know this exposes me as a non-paying consumer of your comic, but can you please do something about them? I wouldn't normally complain, but these are egregious.
