Maxi pad ads?

Do we really need to see a stack of maxi pads at the bottom of food discussions?

    1. Oh the horror. A picture of a stack of unused maxi pads and the mentioning of periods.

        Would you be fine with ads for jock itch products below food threads? I will try AdBlock but CH advertisers may want to refine their automated image servers.

          Sure, why not? Do you also have problems seeing them in grocery stores where they sell these products? Sometimes even placing them in close proximity to food items?

            The grocery stores I go to keep feminine hygiene products pretty far away from food stuffs

              People have crotches. Sometimes they need stuff to deal with their crotches.

              If you don't want to look at it, download AdBlock.

              I have nothing other than that generated by Chow on my page.


              It's a wonderful thing....

                My daughter always warns me about need to be careful what I download .. that's why I asked about this. So, it's safe to download this? Then, no ads?

                Oh my goodness. I doubt maxi pads are far from the food because they have cooties. My store keeps them in the cosmetic aisle with makeup and soaps and stuff because it makes sense not because it's traumatic for people to realize that women need feminine hygiene products. Sheesh.

        2. Ernie......c'mon man......looks like you been around a while, you should know adblock/adblock + is your friend.

            I don't know about adblock; please tell me what to do to get it.

              You could google it, for starters. It'll take you to the website where you download it.

              Et voilá. No more ads.

              Party time.

          2. Would you rather send a check to CBS Interactive?
