I have not been able to get on as much as I like since i deployed but i can't help but think that there were never this many adds popping up in the forums... is there any plans or a system in place to get rid of this spam?
Well they are only on the sides, so they don't bother me too much.
Occasionally I'll get one that is in the middle of my page (one click Survey or something), but hey, the Staff have to make some money off this website.
I agree. The staff does work pretty hard to keep this site up and running. Don't mind the few ads we have see.
