    Who's the whiny bitch, Danno?
    don't take it personally, i have to side with danno. perhaps if his request was unreasonable, you'd have a better point.. But asking for SFW ads seems really reasonable to me.

    You fucking unappreciative bitches might have cost him money.
    on the quiet? what do you suggest, i give him a call? There have been numerous threads about the ads and this is the first one that has received a response.

    peacefully???? yeah, i kicked the crap out of TGR with my mouse and keyboard.

    Banned??? Yeah, he could do that. But then he'd still have the stupid ads, a much bigger problem, and someone who provided more stoke than just about anyone else on this board in the last two years would be gone (more, not necessarily better).

    Entitled? These pictures don't take, edit, and host themselves. I think the thousands of hours over the course of several years does entitle me to have an opinion about the site, and state that opinion. It doesn't mean they have to listen or take action.

    Whiny? You mean like the pm you sent me saying please please delete the thread before someone gets upset? The thread stays. I'll be happy to edit the title and original post as conditions warrant.

    I asked you nicely before getting hostile.

    Excuse the fuck out of me for thinking that is how things are supposed to work.

    powdork, this is a place of BUSINESS. People come here to BUY shit. Try walking into a brick and mortar and start screaming shit that hurts their business. I dare you.

    Not only that, you have a GUEST HOME here filled full of your best friends. A little sacrifice to ride out the ad while taking care of it through other channels would certainly have been a much nicer thing to do. As it is, you come off as a real dick. Somebody who I wouldn't mind punching in the face if you walked into my shop and started spewing.

    In powdork's case, he apparently feels entitled to surf covertly for pleasure while at work. The ad was cramping his "style".
    I am a web designer. I own my own business. I don't care about the NSFW as it relates to me. I hate having my kids hear it, but they hear worse (from me).


    Entitlement is thinking you can surf the web and get all this for free, w/o seeing the ads. Oakley pushes people to not care about that, and it affects my bottom line. I am entitled to protect my standard of living, no?

    People with coexist stickers are ALMOST as bad as tele skiers, although there is some overlap.

    those are stupid ads, it makes me hate the skiers that are in them for some reason. Really just a stupid and annoying ad.


    who wears Oakleys anyways, Smith makes the best goggles, we all know that.

    my computer is always on mute unless I'm listening to tunes or something so it isn't an issue for me. But I've heard them and they are horribly sucky ads. Not TGRs fault.

    Forgive my ignorance - I'm not in the internet ad business - but do the ad counters count page hits or actual ad views. What I'm getting at is, if I'm using an adblocker do the advertisers know that I saw the page but not their ads?

    I've been wondering about this stuff, but am completely ignorant. I specialize in hospitality.

    The ad obviously requires an NSFW AUDIO tag in order to comply.

    Seems like you are defending the add as if? you had something to do with it. I have been irritaed by the add for some time. I have seen more than 1 thread started in ask TGR indicating displeasure with the add. But on it goes.?

    This is a community of people loudly sayin!!! the add sucks!! its irritating!! fix it PLEASE!

    This thread is an appropriate escalation of the displeasure many of us feel related to this add.

    Oakley and TGR have crossed a line of intrusion with the sound activation. I should not have to adjust my computer settings to gaurd against this one off obnocius add.

    So from me and many others Sayin Now VERY LOUDLY FUCKING MAKE THE BAD ADD GO AWAY

    Note TGR Forums are a differnt demographic than New School

    Oakley should get the message that this ad is hurting their business. I'm not going to buy or recommend any of their shit after this.

    And snowful, fuck off and go away.

    A hit is actually a call to the server, so if a page had four pictures on it, you would probably end up with 6 or more 'hits' (1 for the page, 1 for each picture, 1 for the css file, etc.). The adserver will count the number of times the actual ad (or the little 1x1 image associated with the ad) is called. The adblocker blocks the java script that calls the ad so there is no ad view. That's for banners. For traditional Google adsense, you only get paid when an ad is clicked, which can't happen because again the js that calls the ad is blocked. Advertisers can know when an adblocker is being used if they want. I used to redirect those with ad blockers to a page explaining why they couldn't see my site, but eventually threw in the towel when enough viewers complained.

    I wouldn't create an ugly an obnoxious ad. The only thing I have to do with TGR is posting here, and as result have met new and interesting people which I have been able to share very rewarding time with. Like ski and party time!

    I just want us, as a group, to at least present the appearance of being gracious to our host.

    Sometimes that requires a little sacrifice on the guests part to get things worked out. Patience is a virtue, which only matters if you are into virtue, I suppose.

    If not, keep on keeping on.

    first i closed my eyes and wished the ads away, but that didn't work. then i went on a skiing strike, but i could only last 12 hours.
    then i came up with the stokott, and evidently it was enough to get your panties in a bunch.

    You have voiced my sentiments exactly. No longer will I be able to view new products being offered by ANY company advertising through TGR (or other sites). If only Oakley hadn't had such a blatantly obnoxious ad campaign. However, this could have been there goal....
    Our world is full of surrender at the first sign of adversity, do not give up when the challenge meets you, meet the challenge. Through perseverance comes the rewards, the rewards that make life so enjoyable.

    Seize the day, trusting little in the future.

    I know living in the dark half the year can be rough.

    It's OK to come out and play now, I think the mean old ad is gone.
