    My AdFree hasn't worked in a while. I still get the ads. Very odd. Oh well though, they aren't that big of a deal.

    As for why so many clicks, I bet it has to do with them sexy woman ads and young boys thinking they are gonna get some free pr0n.

    Studies show more teenagers have iPhones than Android phones, and that iPhone users are the largest consumers of pr0n on any mobile platform.
