    Man this spamming the forum has gotten out of hand. I'm outta here for a while until the lame goober gets tired of it and his lame links. Best of Luck to you all in the meantime.

    I sent a note to Eric.

    carpet bombing
    lack of group buy in
    off topic
    advertising based
    People leaving

    Enough already.

    The message may have gotten thru, I'm seeing less of it. hope it sticks.

    At least put the word SPAM or Advertisement in the subject line so people know the nature of the post.

    People don't like to be made fools of.

    I hate to hear that..

    ..but at the same time perfectly understand!


    You have been here long enough to remember what it once was...

    ..and what it has now become! :whistling:


    Personally, though I still post here..

    ..it is much less frequent & more frivolous in nature,

    ..and since the Great Archive Carnage(s) & other incidents..

    ..I am no longer willing to invest the time here with serious prepping discussions & deeply involved technical issues (such as backup power, food prep & storage, etc)..

    ..mailbox stays full so PMs of a similar nature are negated.


    You might want to drop by the backup site (Practical Preps)..

    ..as I am sure you will recognize many of the old timer expats there! :supergrin:

    I haven't been here near as long as many, but I can already see the end of my time.. at this moment 12 threads on this page are "tips".. Not any way shape or reason why I am a member here.

    I haven't noticed anything like this in any other forums, am I just missing it or is S/P the only place that gets the fake content advertisements?

    I've been thinking about joining ARF.

    Agreed, while GT appears to be growing in membership numbers, if GT continues on the current path, all that will be left will be the 16 year olds posting in the GNG area.

    The "old" GT was that way it should have stayed. I wish that eric could see that "progression" is not always an improvement. What GT is currently, is a business and less and less of the informal database of what it used to be.

    I have been around here more than 10years, probably posted in here as much as I have anywhere else on GT. I am also disappointed that this has become a AD forum. I will not be returning to this subforum anytime soon. I would like to say that I enjoyed all the friendly debate and sharing of ideas. Thanks

    Maybe Leave A Tip can drop by with a link to an article on his site for how to ignore users!

    This has been a great site for many years but it sadly is appears this is changing. The ad content of this site has been out of control for some time now. I use Firefox with the Adblock Plus extension, along with Remove it Permanently. It keeps the site usable.

    I've also added Leave a Tip to my ignore list, for what it might be worth. You'll find that feature in your User Control Panel under Edit Ignore List. I suggest also reporting every post from that account as spam.

    If nothing else, users here actively blocking that spam account will give Eric an accurate headcount on just how many of us are unhappy with it. Any idiot can setup an internet forum. There are too many other places where we don't have to sort through spam to find actual content. Eric needs to be well aware of that.

    These leave a tip articls sux, and it's disappointing after all these years to see Eric is encouraging it. I still remember the old days when we would enter drawings so he could get the money to keep the forum afloat. Now's it's just a sell out for more profits while the users put up with this garbage. On to ar15 dot com and the better sites. Any one know where I can find a good popup for a chevy truck ??
