And masquerading as a post in every thread.

I have a low tolerance for that kind of thing so it annoys the heck out of me.

What ads?




EDIT: OK, I see it now. Use FireFox with Ad-Block and all you see is what is in the pic below.

That's right. Unsolicited opinions should be kept to yourself, Tredici. We're all just lucky to be here. Every time I post on this hallowed board, I feel like a rookie free agent who's just priveleged to suit up in an NFL uniform. Everything else is gravy.

Sorry, didn't mean to sound like I was bashing you or anything... you've just seemed a little negative lately. Thus the statement "I hope all is well"

Opinions are fine Slappy... I happen to have a few of our trade now that aren't very good!!! rofl

See... if you've read the rest of this thread you'll see I was downright cheerful!

I find ad banners annoying. I don't know if thats a negative opinion. We all have our pet peeves.

Most of us found a huge one when suddenly it was 28-21.... but the Broncos did it right today. As long as that happens I'm good.

It probably pays more to the site than those on the front page. Besides, the History Channel is one of the finest on TV. What do you want...having to scroll over a banner or pay membership instead of voluntary donation drives?

Personnally i would choose paid membership. Like I said I just have low tolerance for most any type of advertising. For some reason the internet variety is doubly annoying. So if it was just me I would gladly pay up if that were a choice.

It will be.

Messing with all this rep stuff I realized that I hadn't even put up the life blood of this forum yet. I put them where they are now because they're harder to ignore, thus hopefully generating a few extra clicks per month to help offset costs.

Realizing that not everybody is going to appreciate that, I've started working on creating a "supporter" user group that can avoid the ads. It's not finished yet, but I'm definitely working towards it.

Ummmm... I will gladly pay up to enjoy membership privledges. But just to be real straight, I won't pay to have ads turned off. That's just the manipulative kind of bull**** these internet pirates are generating.

It could be worse, instead of the history channel we could have ad for male enhancment drugs. Of course TJ would be making some money then.

TJ is making the site pay him some dimes. Good for him! Do we have to click them to turn the dimes into quarters?

****ing stupid. This is by far your dumbest idea and I dont give a **** what you do about it and that's saying something because you have had some brainfart's of idea's before.

I hope, by doing this, you lose half the ****ing members of this board because why should they have to watch stupid ****ing ads in the middle of a ****ing thread because you want some extra cash.

You can lie to these ****ing people all you want, I know what the costs are and if you cant afford to maintain this site, then you need to shut it the **** down and get a better job. If you are paying more than 100 bucks a year total for this thing, you are a god damn idiot.

Since this is permanent, I can definately say this is no longer the best site for Bronco's on teh internet, BroncosFreak has surpassed you. ****ing cheap ass sellout.
