  • Musicians Friend is surrounding me with PORN!

    Wherever I go on the interwebs, there it is, scrolling every few seconds - each new pic more salacious than the last . . . naked beauties every one. . .



    I check my e-mail, and there they are. I read the local newspaper, and over on the side are both a horizontal scroll and a vertical one. I follow a link to check out a story someone posted on fb, and MF is there before me, planting the seeds of lust.



    And all because I clicked on an ad in an e-mail. Will I ever be able to surf the web in peace again? Am I to be the subject of constant temptation? When will it end?
    No offense intended, but (see above) . . .

    Old is the new new.

    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    Delete your browsing history and never return to MF. That should take care of the problem.

      this is how marketing is done via teh interwebz...they 'tag' you...it may be your e-mail provider, or your ISP/host...this is the 'new deal'...they will track you and hound you digitally until the day you succumb...

        I kind of had that prob with Yahoo mail. I wanted some synth patches and the place asked for my email so they could send em there sooo I gave it and when I clicked to download what I thought were patches it grabbed my contact list and emailed everyone I knew forevAr and gave them a crappy link to open to spread more germs.

        I had a million emails from everyone who it tried to contact whether their email was still valid or not. It even somehow guessed that I had the same password with hotmail and tried to wreck that email too.



        I finally deleted my browser history, cooking, changed all my passwords, deleted my contact book and send folders and I think it's under control again.



        I don't know why someone would waste all that time to mess somebody up? WHAT IS WRONG W/ PPL??? /
