Really, so when you go into a restaurant, does that mean your talking pays the restaurant's bills?
You're not good at analogies, are you? People don't pay money to restaurants to hear other people talking, they pay to eat the food provided by the restaurant. I'm delivering food to the restaurant.
You sound like a politician -- I'm so good that just my mere presence should force all to bow before me.
Trying to equate me to something that everyone hates: 3/10 poor effort. 1/10 for accurately describing a politician.
Someone or something has to pay the bills, and a couple ads don't impede that.
You're not good at...words...are you? Ads are no good if no one sees them, and if there's no content on a website, no one will visit that site.
So what if you have to scroll a bit. It is not going to kill you.
Obnoxious interfaces drive away users. It's not about what will or won't kill you, it's about not intentionally driving away users of an already dying forum.
I still cannot get over the fact that you hail from Iowa with an attitude like that. From the rest of this state: Get over yourself.
You sound like a politician -- believing you speak for an entire state while being entirely disconnected from reality and impeding progress.
See what I did there?
