|JohnWR||Yeah, what Dave said.|

As far as I'm concerned, we can happily share the same space on these fora. You aren't doing anything wrong or against any of the rules. Some may complain, including me, but most of us that are complaining have been around on these fora for a long time.

|Wind Restrictor||I'm not sure what else I can possibly do. Guys, you don't have to read said posts. Lowered the post count, lowered the font, and through it all the only thing that's keeping my count up is defending myself. But, you're mad because I have threads in new posts? I'm sorry. Can't do anything else. Understand this is my job and I'd like to make you happy as much as possible. But, now I feel like you're asking me to not do my job. That's something I can't change. BTW I think I've said everything that I'm going to say on this subject. Again, any further problems you can pm me here or email me.We're not going anywhere. Thanks.|

|TomatoSoup||I personally don't care about the sig. But I always review the fora by using the 'new posts' review and the (seemingly) constant new threads from WR bite my crank. Which, by the way, still continue daily.|

To be quite honest I was thoroughly surprised that it was Vic that got upset over this silly subject. WR large add in his sig never bothered me since I ignore all advertising on the w w w. My ad blocker s/w takes care of 90% percent, the rest I just ignore..
So Vic, when you get you a$$ back in here quite being so childish, you trying to imitate that other old man?

after using the internet for so long i find myself "ad blind" (i also don't read post sigs) so i fall into the group that literally doesn't care. but..
"tired of seeing ads? subscribe now." if someone promised subscribers an ad free experience i could see how subscribers might be offended that it's "alright for some."
as a developer i believe forum owners could mod the site to allow sigs to include an "[ad]" tag, and could require advertisers wrap their 'sig ads' in the tag so they can offer an "ad free experience" to paid subscribers (lifetime or otherwise.) advertisers would pay for this privilege (since unauthorized advertisers would be actioned against.) site operators could use this to determine if a poster was violating terms (ie. audit their site(s), of which i'm sure they own a surprising number). there is also reporting value, like CTRs, which "direct" advertisers might appreciate if they don't already have their own service.
but then i'm "ad blind", it seems like a waste of time/money to bother.

|Wind Restrictor||Guys, I really appreciate the support. It's been quite the "s" show though and I'd just like it to end. It was never that big of a deal. If a customer would've just pmed me it would've probably been done a while ago quietly. If either of you (or anyone) want to talk to me about it please pm me or email me. Thanks again guys.|

|Robotech||Nova, you have to realize Paul from WR is doing what he feels is best for his business. Upsetting your target demographic is not good for business. And we're not talking people who just started posting, we're talking members who have been around a while. I think with the red in the sig the message still gets across without being hugely distracting.|

Vendor or not, there is NO need to make your font all teeny tiny in your signature OR to stop posting on topics that interest you!
So a very small group sees it as spam...
They are by far in the minority compared to ALL the OTHERS who've posted that it's not a big deal (or that haven't even bothered to post on the subject).

I never even realized their posts or signature were an issue. That makes me very surprised that was the vendor and the issue.
Jees, buck the F Up. There are way more important things to worry about and much larger issues to get upset at.

I hope this thread has ran its course and no longer needs to be brought up. No need to close it though as look at what is has brought forth being allowed to discuss this issue by being allowed to stay open.

Guys, I hear you loud and clear. This is Paul btw. I've been advertising off and on here for WindRestrictor the last few years. If anyone had a problem or has one please hit me up [email protected]. I can lower the signature. The issue here wasn't that someone made a suggestion, that I understand. We've had issue with the person who suggested it in the past, that's why I didn't see it as just a "suggestion". I don't want to get into the hows, whys, and whats. If you've seen our interactions with others though, we've been more than patient. BTW the problems had nothing to do with our product at all. But, lower the posts and the font... Yep, I can do that. That's no problem.
I'm going to post this then immediately after lower the font and my post count even more. You can also PM me here if you have any further suggestions. Thanks.
