Weight loss commercials?

Please don't tell me that this is going to become what the TV Food Network became. If I see a girl in a bikini on the side bar, I will quit. If every time I log in to discuss food I get a guilt trip because I'll never look like that ...... Please, at least keep ads to the "weight loss department". Oh, OK, you don't have that one! That should tell you something.

Best thing is not to post on the subject, because Google will add ads that seems relevant to your post. There are nine ads along the top and down the side of this thread, for example. Seven of them are to do with the subject you want to avoid...

There are way too many Weight Loss Commercials on TV but the public is considered to be on the heavy side so the sponsors like to run these commercials.

As Snoop Puss said, google ads are relevant to the words on the page. I love my Fire Fox AdBlocker! I see nothing
