Well, ADV did add the ads...
I'm waiting for the option that gives me the "Athletic Supporter" badge...
I'm going to sound like a suck-up here (not that it's needed), but I'll say this - most people don't understand what a fucking headache administering a site involves with the shameless exploitation of any of the forum software available. The aggravating fuckers can find weaknesses in the code and turn loose an avalanche of spammers on the readers, but it's even worse for the people running the show. I was the admin at Netsword back when it was a viable site - and it had a fraction of the users and traffic that ADV has. Frankly I'm surprised that Baldy isn't stark raving mad by now as playing whack-a-mole gets old, and quick.
Yes, there are add-ins and code mods that will take care of some of it, and there's always that CAPTCHA shit we all know and love for new users until some hacker figures out a way around it - but in the end, it comes back to some form of whack-a-mole. The Internet wasn't built for the way we use it today - anything we do with it going forward is going to be some kind of compromise and someone's going to have to do the heavy lifting - in our case, Baldy and crew.
Don't be a cheap shit, sign up as a supporter. Who here can't shake out a fiver a month? I could probably find that in the tank bag of a KLR if I'm willing to count the pocket change - excuse me, lunch money.
Second week without mail.
You decide to make it monthly?
Am i blocked?
the email server is being blocked by that annoying pop up everyone was getting.

Never got it
Never wanted it
Do we really need the emoji in the subject of the newsletter? It really doesn't fit...
Interesting ad popped up today.
Not that I'm complaining, mind you...
FWIW it came up on my work PC, which is not subjected to that sort of web surfing. Unless ADV is in that category. So I'm not really inclined to blame this on cookies.
Just an FYI. I don't actually care, but some might.
