Stop trying to get me in trouble with the admins..

Yes, I was slightly annoyed by the VROOM VROOM banner but do not feel it needs to be removed. I would like the board to remain free, so if an occassional VROOM VROOM is the only price I pay - then let it remain..

Besides, I don't want them to take away my newly acquired title thingy..

I love the admins

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy.

I have to admit it is p*ssing annoying when you are listening to a cd and you hear a sound of a car.

How about (if this is implementable, if not then there's nowt I can do) a sound off option on the board (unless there is a way of doing it on my computer so I can play cds and browse without being interrupted in which case could someone enlighten me?

Personally, I felt it went with House of Pain - Jump Around very well... I'm quite taken with the new remix

and where they produce desolation, they call it peace

do we get royalties if you release it Rom?

Why don't you just mute the sound, or turn the volume off?

Does the restriction from discussing WTAworld advertising apply to this forum only or to the entire board?

Well you can always do a poll to see if people prefer a free board with pop-ups or a pay-site.

Actually the ads don't affect me. I was just wondering if we're allowed to raise the subject ANYWHERE on the board, given that two recent threads have been clamped in here.

The Admins don't need to be so defensive every time the subject comes up. It's your board after all, this is not a democracy and your position is now crystal clear. How about a forum devoted to discussions on the ads so that people can let off steam if they feel a need to?!

Yes, and maybe while we're at it, we could install a forum for people who are banned, so they can discuss their innocence there

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

the sounds advertising sucks big time when you're playing music on your PC.

as if I'm gonna go and check out the sponsor's website when it has pissed me off

is there any independent evidence to suggest that web advertising via spam mail and pop ups is actually effective?

even wtatour.com has some dumb car advert covering the main story for 30 seconds

You have long been my goal, been my chasing, been my soul. I have hung out on the edge. But I just couldn't let go. There's a time to forgive. There's a time to forget. Close your eyes, get ready, set. Walk me down this fall I'm taking but don't let me go yet. Oh let me go, sweetheart, throw me, around you, like you know me. And remember me too. Remember me too from a dream i had of you. Mary Margaret O'Hara | Dream I Had | Apartment Hunting | 2002.
