    Banners!? You gotta be kidding, right?

    Now there's banners on every message posted to a thread!? Is this some kind of measure to deter us from posting? This is ridiculous!?

    1 - Who thought this one up?
    2 - Who approved the idea?
    3 - Who implemented it?

    This is absurd. If these banners stay, I won't. Gratuitous advertisements are one of the most annoying things in the world.

    As quickly as they came, they are now gone. Weird.

    And Mole, I realize they make money through advertisements. I didn't expect them to jam an advertisement in my mouth everytime I posted a message!

    When did this happen? Of course, I don't have a problem with banners. I mean I'm adept to ignoring them anyways. Whatever,...

    I want to know how to buy ad space on those ad banners.

    How kewl it would be if everytime someone opened a thread they could see my name on the ad banner "GLUCKSTADT"! ~grin~

    Maybe even post my url and increase my website hits.

    Who cares. It's their site and they own it.

    No banners so you'll stay. So you figure out how they can make money?

    I've taken to ignoring all forms of advertising, I just don't see it anymore
    so it does not bother me if it stays or goes
    just make sure you get banners which pay per exposure, not per click

    Be careful about ignoring advertising. that's how subliminals work. Your concious mind ignores them, but your subconcious sees all and remembers it. in fact, that's the technique used by many speed readers. Worse is that the smarter you are, the more sensitive you are to it.
