    You could also try a search engine other than Google. They would sell your soul to the devil (or the Red Chinese) if they could.

    I don’t know anything about them and now I’m scared to google them.

    I’m afraid I’ll get infected with the pop up bug.

    Hi.

    I get B&G guitar ads a lot on YouTube.

    Normally this would bother me, but their ads are really good, with some great sounding guitars and great playing. Product demos really. So at times I just watch them anyway.

    Like this one.



    But generally yeah, when I get carpet bombed with a company’s ads, I tend to go right off them.

    Yeah, that sure seems to be what happened to me. I guess I'm sounding the alarm. Glad to know my post went from personal rant to PSA. :twisted:

    Since dented pointed out that the company's based in Orange, I'm guessing the former, but it could be the latter, or a combination thereof.

    Yeah, I 'm getting that impression about the Big G. I think I'll investigate that...hopefully without resorting to a Google search! :rolleyes:

    aaaargh! I was on a Land and Farm website looking at property and guessed what popped up! It was a banner and it only came out once.....Orangewood Guitars. Intermess is invasive.

    Access the web using a VPN (Virtual Private Network), they can't get your IP that way to spam you. I use one from Norton.

    Evidently the ads work. You just started an entire thread about them and I am about to check look them up out of curiosity.

    Don't know about Orangewood, but I wish the pop up ads for the life size blow up dolls would stop...

    Send them an e-mail. Be logical, rational, and make your point. Don't rant to them if you want them to listen.

    In case anyone was wondering what Orange tree wood looks like..

    I remembered a piece of art I was given by an Italian artist /wool buyer in La Paz back in the 80's...

    it's been sitting on my table for decades now... I just gave it a quick 1500 sand and a wipe down with spirits...

    a Llama, using turquoise beads and silver wire...in Orange wood..:)
