You are here

An extremely rude welcome

"Adblockers are not welcome in this community, please leave"

Excuse you mate?
For your information, I was directed over here by a fellow forum member of mine because of that message.

We all get why you uphold advertising on your site. It's for revenue to help your site stay up and running.

Now listen to the other side of the boat for once. We; your site's visiting traffic, will tolerate advertising, but not when there's so much advertising to the point where it gets intrusive to the average visitor trying to go through the website, not when full-out Google adsense floods the background of the site, and CERTAINLY NOT when there are advertisements out there that feeds backdoor viruses such as malware and trojans just from it loading.

People don't use Adblockers to be jacka***s; they use them to stay safe on the internet which is absolutely important and especially so nowadays with cyber attacks and hacking taking place worldwide. If you have over 80% of your website full of advertisements, people are going to use an Adblocker no matter what you threaten them with. I personally have 3 Adblockers and 2 Anti-Adblock Blockers because I don't have time to give in to one website owner's emotions and risk my PC getting about a dozen viruses.

Now about that message in particular. How would you feel if you were to be on a rural highway driving in an old Kingswood, you had to stop for fuel since the metre is just tipping on E, there's a fuel station and it's the last one for another 1500 kilometres. You go inside to pay for fuel and buy something, but the shopkeeper refuses to serve you just because you're wearing a particular type of glasses that you'd need to be wearing because you might have a sight problem. How would you be feeling then?!?

Telling someone who's just visiting to stuff right off and hit the pots just because they use an adblocker is no way to treat a visitor. Guess what happens to visitors that have to deal with a rude shopkeeper? They get no more business from them. And if they have enough business turnaways, they will lose revenue and have to close down. Why? Because of their own rude attitudes.

You can either clean up your act and get rid of that filthy message and maybe change to cookies, or face the consequences.

So what's it gonna be???

Not looking for people that throw threats around. I'm probably more interested in level headed people that want to help. Nothing in the shop left, till gone. Wasting too much time on this, I need a 1300 number and a robot to answer. Bye.

Holden Fan your shop analogy is not really relevant in this situation, I doubt Rusty makes enough out of ads to keep the lights on here let alone to justify his time or actually turn a profit.

You need to clean up your own act and realise what Rusty provides here costs you nothing. It's like you've turned up at Rusty's BBQ and given him a spray because he didn't provide you with a vegan option. If you don't like what's on offer you don't have to come.

Please don't take it to heart. The site runs on an oily rag. It needs more oil on the rag. The adds help pay Rusty's bills. Yeah, nah may not be the warmest of welcomes, but just unclick the thingy and come join us. We've all been here for many years, you'd be most welcome if you came and signed up.

At the end of the day
We the willing
Lead by the unknown
Are trying to do something of the impossible
We try so hard
But achieve a little
but we are willing to listen and to learn from the older wiser gentleman
Who has been there and done that and learn from his own experience and is willing to share his wisdom

I for one am grateful for his knowledge and have learned a lot more then I could have imagine from this site and from my fellow members

I say thank you to my fellow members ๐Ÿ˜Ž
