    One that obviously pays enough to get it?

    These message board have advertising all over them. It doesn't run for free. The software alone is in the thousands of dollars. We just got an upgrade that I'm sure wasn't out of the goodness of anyone's heart.

    Even on boards where the owners are political idealists, they ask for donations to at least foot the bill.

    Just be thankful we don't have the popups one owner tried. THAT sucks.:lol:

    The guy's giving you a place to play. If he can make a buck or two off of it, who cares?

    As I'm not in a position to send $$$ to any of the boards I frequent, I click their links. Probably not often enough, but I try.

    It's grown on me. But can we get back the thing that says how many posts have been made since the last time we were on. I always looked at that.

    I hate all internet advertising. And no other advertisers that I have seen or message board that I have visited has a subforum for them.

    Now, this doesn't mean that I don't understand, but I was just answering your question honestly. There is not perfection on this board, and if you ask me how I would improve it, I will have answers.

    Odd.. For someone with many complaints, it's sure good enough for you to keep coming back, and making sure your voice is heard. :)

    Yeah, it is not terrible, and it is emotionally satisfying to me.
