As you guys will remember, the old CF Babes section got dumped a while back. Maybe because some posters tried to push the limits or CF management decided that a "family site" didn't need that kind of sections. Yet some of the avatars over there seem to violate the current policy.

Now having said that, and with the ongoing comments over there about "babes" and the other big issue with IB and their advertising, this ad popped up in an Admin's post.


What's funny is that the thread with this page is still running in OT

They'd probably love your avitar but if they didn't like you, you wouldn't be able to use it.

Pretty much true. It coudl be that the Mods are more interested in post content, attitude, and such, that they don't always check out individual avatars.

BTW, the CF post with the ad has been sent to the boneyard and a request has been made to IB to notify Google to stop sending ads that don't meet the 'family' standards to the CF pages.

The whoe ad deal had caused problems ever since it started. There were a number of Corvette-related Google ads that appeared that were in direct competition with the supporting businesses so they in effect got free advertising while the supporters had to pay.

Links to eBay ads were a no-no yet eBay was one of the Google ads that showed up. So now posting about eBay is not that big of a deal anymore.

So asking questions and trying to understand why so many of you who hate CF so much spend so much time acting like you so wish you could post there again is bitching. Fascinating.

I don't see anyone acting like that. I see people laughing at the train-wreck that's forming at CF.

REluctantly, I have to agree with you, but watching failure is not pleasant...

That depends on who is failing and why they are failing.

CF is bringing it upon themselves.

True, but I still get maybe a giggle or a snicker or two outta it, but no huge pleasure....

but like most things, it's time to move on sometimes....

So Arnie,

Long time no talk at.

Speaking of train wreck..I left there too..

Besides the tech wreck the Great lakes section became intolerable for me.

No real reason to go there anymore. So I am spending my time here.

How's that vette of yours? I assume you recovered from some of those 'assembly and parts" issues...(to be kind)
