Default Yo ib.......

Your ads are great and all, plus they make you money, but why in the hell are ads coming up IN people's posts? I made a post and when I looked at it there is a giant (bigger than the pik I posted) Tim Hortons ad. I do not represent Tim Hortons, I am not sponsored by Tim Hortons, I do not endorse Tim Hortons, I am in no way shape or form affliated with Tim Hortons (though I did once get a god awful sandwhich there, never again).

If you want to plaster ads all over, go for it, make your money, but please keep them the HELL OUT OF MY POSTS making it look like I am putting it there endorsing it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

phragle,
would you clarify whether or not you are endorsing the Teague ad in your above post?

I've noticed this on other sites (not boating related) but these type of ads are everywhere. On one of the non-boating boards I'm also a member of the intrusiveness of the ads are driving members away, it's really quite sad. It was a popular board but now there's just a few left, and it's not an IB owned site. With all the other options around I'd think IB would show a little more discretion, these ads are freezing some computers, slowing performance in others, and are just a general nuisance...it's actually working against them IMO.

You have to realize your dealing with a different mindset these days...

Nothing is long lasting, attention spans are microscopic. IT/internet marketing is not a long term goal, Milk it, whatever is hot while its still profitable and move on.

Same for me. Not one ad.

Only thing killing me right now is not having a like button. I would have just liked your post and not had to reply.
