I know to promote harmony the operators of this board banned all political and religious discussion. With that said – how about you stop taking ads from political organizations as well. I am offended by all the Pro Obama ads I see here. Fair is Fair….goose and gander and all that….

(shoot…guess I should have put this on the Site Feedback forum – my bad)

I can’t believe anyone actually pays attention to the ads… Personally, I couldn’t care less what the ads say because I am here for the rest of the content.

Good thing I blocked all the ads from displaying.

I’d say since the ban, traffic here is well down. Does anyone else agree?
Funny that the whiners are nowhere to be seen, and the ones who caused the whiners to whine in the first place are gone too.
Don’t expect them to stop political ads as well – now that the traffics down they have to get their revenue stream from somewhere.

Personally i come here alot less since “the ban”. I liked the banter and such, just think its a bit hypocritical to ban political posts and then sell political banner ads. Okay more than a bit….

KD It was an observation, not a whine. As this is a statement, not a whine.

The site was a lot more interesting before; I’ve yet to see a political ad myself. Look on the bright side, at least they aren’t Romney ads.

I have yet to see any political adds on this web site. If I am correct, many adds on this web site are initiated by searches done on your browser.

To try it out, just close off LJ site, search for something way out of your norm, close that off, and go back to the LJ site and I am willing to bet a couple of toothpicks that adds for that appear on your LJ web page!

So, if you haven’t searched for it than perhaps someone else on your PC has!

I too have only noticed woodworking and home improvement based ads on this web site, but…

If someone wants to support the web sites I read, more power to ‘em. In fact, I’d rather that my political opponents support the sites I read, ‘cause I tend to research out my voting decisions fairly heavily, and would prefer that those who agree with me are spending their dollars where they’re likely to win converts.

The whole argument about banning politics was that this is a woodworking site and so only woodworking should be aloud. I have asked why we are not consistent and ban the “non-shop” forum. What does vacations, jokes, global warming or the likes have to do with woodworking?

face it vern…our society has turned into selfish pansies who’s skin is a thin as the finest veneer.
