What's with the Mazda ad?

For days now there has been an ad for Mazda nestled among the stickied threads. Anybody know why it chose us and how to get rid of it?

Re: What's with the Mazda ad?

another Mazda ad just appeared in the stickies. I am guessing this is a new way for basketballforum to post ads. It's a SPONSORED POST. I think we're stuck with it.

Hey, if convincing them we might buy a Mazda (even though we're totally not going to buy Mazdas) is enough to keep this board up and running, I'm down.

I hope Mazda sales completely tank and the company goes bankrupt. Fuck 'em for being so annoying.

Haha- I'm not convinced the ad placement is Mazda's fault, but maybe try a browser extension like AdBlock (does a bang-up job removing all of the ads).

Re: What's with the Mazda ad?

No idea what ad you're talking about, but does Mazda have the safest SVU around?

Re: What's with the Mazda ad?

Ok, I was kinda ok with Mazda. But I think I draw the line at Mazda Latino.

UPDATE: And then it was gone. Two sticky threads back down to one.
