The owner of this site owns several others, and the impression I get is that he owns them largely for the money they generate through click-revenue. If we had any ability to change the ads, it would have happened a long time ago.
At this point I've accepted it as an unfortunate part of this site that isn't likely to change.
Yeah I was in the same boat - disabling, enabling them. Now it is on perm disable for mmanews as that stupid sound was so annoying. I open threads in tabs and my machine was beeping like every 2 seconds one morning.
Its an outrage. I have so much more than 2000 rep and nobody can see!
LMAO and rarely do i agree w/ smoogy but he has a point. who gives a fuck. Its rep points on an MMA forum, its not dollars or your overall health. Maybe they capped the rep so that it would detour animosity between members? ever think of that? huh? huh?
