Dude, look who responded on CFOT:
Dear Corvetteforum members,
Thanks for your feedback on the new advertising position we introduced at Corvetteforum last week, including the initial video ad and then the Google ad that replaced it. Based on your suggestions, and after consulting with site administrator Jim Willis (savewave), we've made some modifications to diminish the ad's impact on supporting members and vendors.
We're blocking Google ads -- including the one to the right of the first post in a thread -- for the following types of accounts:
Supporting Lifetime Gold
In addition, we have removed the Google ad adjacent to the first posts from any post created by a Supporting Dealer, Manufacturer, Tuner or Vendor to avoid the possibility of competitive advertisers showing up right next to their posts.
We've also added a border to the first post Google ad to make it apparent the ad is not part of the first post.
We have taken the feedback from the community and worked hard to come up with a resolution that supports our community’s concerns. We appreciate the feedback we have received ([email protected]
