@mrbee: So, where is the best place to send feedback about stuff like this?

Hate it.  It’s all getting to be a little too much marketing for my liking.  Too many posts selling things and now this.  Maybe it’s what happens when a big company buys a smaller site, but it’s very off-putting…

ok, I see it now! it doesn’t bother me because it’s not moving. I’ve seen much, much worse. I hate the pop ups that cover up the entire page and you have to click on the “close” button to get them to go away (and popup blocker doesn’t block them all). or when I go to seattle times, there is always a HUGE ad at the top that eventually closes itself, so when that happens the page under it moves up. when I’m reading something in the middle of the page, all of the sudden the text will start to move up the screen. I hate that!

but this ad on the boards page – it’s not moving or blocking anything. whatever keeps the site free!

Ugh, I hate it. Especially in the middle of the boards. It makes me think it’s the end of the page. : /

I know that it’s a good way to make money, but it really bugs me that WB is selling favours/invitations now, too. *sigh*

Yes, it’s annoying and distracting.

@MissHoneyBun: What was that thread about? Screencaps of what? It must have been a pretty big personal attack to take down a thread about screencaps….

I don’t think the placement is the best…but overall I don’t mind. What I DO mind, is the e-mail I am starting to get about the latest deals in the WB favor shop. I have only gotten one e-mail thus far…so I hope that’s not going to be a regular thing. Or at least there is a process put in place to opt out.

It is most definitely annoying.

Completely annoying. I’ve just stopped scrolling and ignoring any threads past it.

Does it have something to do with the eHarmony ownership?
