Regarding the previous threads in the support section, it looks like they've all been addressed. This leads me to believe that as it stands the problem is essentially viglink. So if that is not the case then tell me what problems are still present. If it is the case, viglinks pay for the site's overhead and operation, comparable ad affiliates that cover that cost as well are far more obtrusive and cause significant lag. You are entitled to post whatever disclosures you like in your reports, you're well within your rights on that, I can't and absolutely wouldn't stop you.

End of the day, whether or not I'm a hiker says nothing to the fact that I don't want this site to fail. You can take that as you will, you can assume the community is rolling their eyes and you can tell me where to go all you want. I'll still be here singing the same tune.


Thank-you for clarifying the disclosure matter. You're right that the links do state that they've been added by VigLink, so you're living up to your obligations to the Canadian guidelines.

Regarding my "F*** you" comment, this wasn't directed at you. Please re-read the post. My point was that this was essentially what you were saying to all of us! By taking the main point of this thread and stating that it's never going to change rather than engaging in a discussion about what it would take financially to replace that revenue, you shut the conversation down.

Whatever... I'm done with this one for now. I've expressed my frustration and for now, you can count me as just another CT member who has checked out.
