Hi Martin, I am afraid that is because Webshots has started to add this to people who are not paying their charges. I agree with you that it is far too much & this will trigger me to get my finger out & give them the good B8llocking I have been thinking about. Dave Croft

I posted to them "I find the current situation for any non subscribers trying to view anything I post is totally unaceptable. It is starting to get me thinking of changing my photoviews supplier & many other people are of a similar opinion. The adverts totally prevent viewing of the picture & are far too much. I think you may soon find anti-webshots groups starting."

They have just replied, "Hello, We really appreciate your suggestion and will forward it to our Content Managers. Please let me know if you need additional assistance. Thank you, Your Customer Support Representative"

I don't see any of the nasties on the site because I've got addresses such as ad.doubleclick.net and so on redirected to It does make their site look a bit like a colander though, since most of the stuff there is from one spyware company or another and I've got just about all of them blocked.
