    Mass Email/Spam


    I just got about 3 or 4 emails from "Advertising Partners" of this site. I don't remember opting in for that.

    I haven't visited much as of late because of all the intrusive ads and I really can't go to many places because of the ads (I surf a lot on my Android phone and my Android tablet) but it is nice when I finally get there.

    This was the last straw. I unsubscribed from your spam.

    I am considering deleting my account just so I won't have to come back, fight the ads, and unsubscribe from something else.

    On my desktop and laptop, I surf with adblock on.

    I run a few sites (including some vBulletin sites), and I understand you have to make money, but this is getting near rediculous.

    One more thing, the new post and preview windows are about 1/3 of the page, I assume because of the ad placement and the sheer amount of the ads. It is all scrunched in the middle.

    Thanks for the good times and the friends I have met.

    Yeah I know oz, was just venting a little bit. I didn't expect an answer, just had to get it out.

    You guys really do a good job, and thanks for listening to us complain, lol.

    Note that I did use the Contact Us link to submit a quick alert regarding your comments to those in charge of all advertising, but you can always do the same should you with to do so.

    Thanks for the feedback.
