New infolinks ads?

Recommended Posts

Lately I've been seeing new ads on this site that pop up from the bottom of the page. I can't say that I like them much.

Years ago, when we were asked to whitelist nsanedown, I went along with it. We were promised they would just be small, unobtrusive, text-based rollover ads and I thought, "Well, the site has to support itself somehow. It shouldn't be that bad," and it hasn't been until now.

Yes, these ads can be closed, but why are they there in the first place? Have the ad rates changed so we need them to keep afloat? I don't see any posts in the site announcements, nor ant in the site/forum feedback

A lot of work & I'm sure expense goes in to keeping this quality site up. I'd rather donate a few $ than have to put up with rollover/pop-up ads. Thanks to all that contribute their time and efforts for all of our benefit and education.

I AM CONTEMPLATING REMOVING INFOLINKS FROM THE WHITELIST

It's been disabled :)

This isn't a recent change though, it's been like this ever since we moved to Infolinks. These ads only showed up when you reach our site through a search engine.

Infolinks one of the nasty ads inc some others in this forum..

I have been using AdMuncher since 2012. What ever the explanation and justification has been told i really do not want to see a lot of rubbish, add & popup wherever i visit on the internet icl. nsaneforums i strongly advice use your favorite popup blocker.

I thank you (or whomever) disabled them, but the last time I arrived here via search engine was before it became nsanedown. I've had it bookmarked for years.

EDIT: Still seeing them.

I'd be happy with making contributions.

nsane is pinned to my taskbar, yet I still see the infolinks popup from below, so it's not disabled for everyone.
