If you get advertising when you view TSP, it is caused by software on your computer attempting to serve up advertising related to the sites you view. This sort of software or "adware" is a common hidden and unwelcome passenger with other free programs.
- TSP does not have advertising.
- The server hosting TSP does not send you advertising with TSP.
Since TSP uses phpBB3 software, it includes the term phpBB3 in every url.
Adware which knows nothing else about the site detects the term phpBB3 and serves up advertising for Tapatalk.
I can't speak for android devices looking at your urls and serving up ads, but that would be in character for google.

As TSP has sufficient funds to pay its hosting, I thought we could all do without ads taking up screen space. It leaves space for more wonderful TSP posts ( and the occasional comment stupid comment by.......)
