Yeah I thought this was a place to talk about cars but Cadillac's more specifically. Its more of a market place now adays then ever. At first with all the vendor ad's on the side and tops of the page I was cool with it. But now I can't even look at a post without it being a link to someplace to get the product. For an exmaple look above where the words cars and Cadillac's is now a link to some BS website. This will probably get locked or deleted but I just wanted to state that this is some BS.

Check the site news section, you can easily disable the "intellitext" or whatever stupid program that is that does the text ads. There has to be a way to fund the forum you know, when you get as much traffic as this forum does.

Intellitext is everywhere these days, but this is the FIRST site I've ever seen where the Admin will actually TELL you how to disable it.

I drive a Hot Rod Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham with American Racing Torque Thrust II's w/ BF Goodrich tires, a K&N Air filter and a Dynomax Exhaust.

Did I mention it has a Corvette derived LT1? Or that I don't have the Bose stereo option?

Sorry, I just wanted to see how intelligent this new thing is!! :lildevil:

(Edit: Nothing is linked. Is that good or bad? :hmm: )

Maybe it's your Browser and any popup blockers you may be running. I can see the links in my IE and Firefox on all of my computers.

I posted this in another thread about this same topic, but I'll repeat it here.

How much does it cost a year to run this site?

I run a site with the exact same purpose as this site. a place for Chrylser Sebring Convertible owners to come together to share knowledge and information about the car. to help each other trouble shoot problems and do mods. I have a photo gallery for users to post their pictures of the cars, etc. Avatars AND signatures are all allowed.

We have ZERO ads. I pay for the site yearly by donations. About one month before the bill is due I make a posting and ask for donations. I have only ONCE come up short in donations to break even on the bill.

I don't see why all the ads are necessary here. I can do it for my site, and if i can help out here I would but I cannot justify $60 for 6 months or a year to be a site supporter here. Most of my members do donations of $12 ($1 per month to $20) some even more if the site has been especially helpful to them.

just my $.02 worth. I hope I have not offended anyone.
