Exclamation Attention new owner! Malicious ads are killing this site!

i cannot even see most forums on my iphone. and on my laptop it takes forever to load, by the time it does i'm usually already onto some different site. if you want to make some money on ads you won't be able to if nobody can even get to the site let alone actively participate in threads!

i guess you need to install some kind of filter to make sure ads coming through are not the malicious ones?

we love the site (and some fans hate it but still look at it all the time if they can access it!) and would love to be able to keep it and communicate on it, and archive our reviews and stories... but we can't put anything on it if majority of us cannot even access it on our phones or other devices!

You can see the traffic is way down. There are 2-3 posts per day. This site is slowly dying and someone needs to fix it. I sometimes too give up and move on.

I started using an ad blocker for that very reason. It helps a lot.

It takes me about 45 seconds to move between each thread/forum/menu. It used to take 2 seconds.
It would be nice just to have our thoughts acknowledged.

You guys be careful. When I asked a few questions about
this situation (maybe not in the nicest way) I was temporarily
banned.

Being haughty and not being liked by at least one or more
people here that have the power to make you disappear is
not a good combination.

But life go's on. And maybe for the better...

this post will self-destruct in 10...9...8...

p.s.
what happened before will happen again
mark my words...
