What about annoying posters?
What about annoying subjects? (can you say REDUNDANT )
What about annoying moderators?
What about annoying attitudes?
What about our annoying search "feature"?
What about annoying members like ME !!!
If the guy that owns this private enterprise, (yep Virginia it's really not a community, or a club, it's a bizness....) didn't want the ads (annoying or not), he could do away with them. But I suspect that he loves 'em. And he has every right to. Money drizzeling in generally soothes most pains.
My point is that there is lots of stuff on this large forum that annoys me too. But I have taught myself to ignore much of it. Just harvest what you need or want to store away and pay no mind to the other.
This forum is a treasure. Costs most of us nothing, absolutely nothing and
has saved most of us many dollars in free advice and information.
My only real concern is that since it is owned by one person, (or maybe he has formed a company with other investors), that it could all go away in less than a heartbeat, in the twinkleing of an eye.
Millions of words and thousands of posts and threads and photos gone gone gone into cyber hell, with no chance of return.
Lets keep Andy happy.
All the more reason for him to be kept happy with his ad sales.
