Did you know that you aren't allow to use adblockers on Frihost?

Please don't. Frihost survivies on the ads, if everyone blocks them, Frihost will close down.

Thanks for the pointer. It has been just an hour or so since i joine frihost. I have already excluded frihost from the block list. So i suppose that solves the case.

If they caled it powerful you wont have noticed. By calling it powerfull they got instant publicity. Why shouldnt they do it?

Actually what shabda said was quite true, they have got my attention by making that spelling error, and that served the purpose of the ad.

Yes, but if they are unable to spell "powerful", how reliable do you think they would be with your credit card details?

It might be ok if you make a mistake in a essay or a a post. But if you are making a mistake in a ad for which you are paying, Hmm, what can I say?
