    Is there really that much that somebody can share their thoughts about? I think this thread is pretty much at a consensus that "it sucks, but that's the internet." No need to @ a bunch of people too, if they want to contribute to the thread, they will.

    The internet is a shitty place, thats all i can say. Its a shame to see our game dragged through the mud. The thing is, i think that doesnt affect us. There is no overlap between the people that actually play beamng, and those that would fall for those advertisements

    Thanks for replying to this thread, Srockzz. You rock, man. Anyways, the internet can be a horrible place in a lot of cases. Don't even get me started on how deceiving those ads. Free BeamNG.Drive? Yeah, right. Free BeamNG.Drive is like Slayer being a pop band. Next thing you know, some kid will see that ad and think "oh boy, Beamng is free. YAY! =D". My problem with ads like this is that they can easily trick young kids into thinking BeamNG is free when it isn't.

    Sooo you guys don't use adblock? Youtube doesn't deserve your money in the first place, so you don't have to feel guilty.

    There are tons of adblockers for Firefox, I recommend uBlock Origin in particular (for Chrome, Firefox, and Edge). It even works on the Firefox mobile app as well.

    youtube will accept anything as an ad considering i have seen multiple ads that had more than "suggestive" content in it. youtube really needs to look at what ads they approve and they know little kids use youtube and the fact that nobody is really talking about this kinda pisses me off.
