Default Ads

I understand the local vendors having ads here and dont have an issue with it. However when did the ads at the bottom start? I thought my $12 was supposed to keep those away.

Nice thought, but your $12 buys you the ability to complain about the ads in the SSF.

Is it just me, or does the guy in the "I got ripped in 4 weeks" add have hulk hands? They are bigger then his head
. . . . Not that I’m spending time looking at him. The 11% comment just made me go to bottom to see if I had one up and I noticed that freakish feature.

what are you talking about? There hasn't been an ad change in 13 months.

The only ads that anybody logged in sees are the banner ads in the top right. Why the hell would anybody scroll down to the bottom of the pages here?

Have you noticed how fast this server is? The only reason its here is because of the income from the ads at the bottom of the page. This was discussed at length when I added them.

There will never be any ads above the reply box on this site for anybody logged in.

when my page starts loading, that super hot buff guy pops up and looks me right in the face then as the page continues to load he goes to the bottom. So its kinda hard to miss.

the good news is that i get a woodie right when i login which i am guessing is the point, right?

Mostly when you view the site while not logged in.

For some reason I hate seeing completely unrelated ads on a 4x4 website, it's "tacky" I guess. (for lack of a better term off the top of my head) Gmail is just as bad though because whatever is in your email you get an advertisement for something similar right above it. Pirate is even worse than it is here. I guess it's just the way the internet is going and something that will just be there no matter what, like commercials on the tv.

Setup a donation area for those who want to complain about the ads. They can pay $20 each, then whine all they want. Enough complaints, and you'll solve the ad income problem!
