    Why ??

    Why is this site allowing posting from advertisers on the forum pages instead of the Vendor's page?

    Do you think it's relevant to have ads for Mazda's, Weird News, Ammo and other things on these forum pages ?

    I see this same thing happening over on the Colt Forum, too..............

    Is this a sign that the Forum needs operating money? Or is it an invasion of retailers, like what's happening to Ebay.........

    Have you noticed it?.............Thoughts??

    Well tom my Pop's used to reply to at question with......because Y is a crooked letter...............but I suspect if you follow the money that is where the answer is. you have something like this that was initiated by like minded individuals on a shoe string budget and it blew into a full blow business and you have to feed the beast. some actually call that progress.................

    I am not happy with the advertisements showing up on this forum. It is very annoying to me, and are these companies Gun friendly?

    Tom, the following thread will bring you up to speed on this topic, in case you haven't viewed it:
    OK. I'm puzzled...

    I just posted to it attempting to get a straight forward answer as to WHY?

    I agree , but have been trying just to ignore all the new, inevitable changes in things in general to preserve what sanity I have remaining.

    All I see are gun company related ads. Brownell's, Lucky Gunner...

    Maybe they are targeted by area, and nobody wants to spend money on my area.

    I'm not seeing what you guys are seeing. My guess is that you need a popup blocker. I run Adblock Plus. it is a freeware product. You can google it.
