if everyone says forums are dead because of how popular social media are............ then why do spambots still spam them everywhere non-stop, as if that has any use?

seriously this is what the forum looks like to a mod, here's the first page of the Coldplay subforum:



and the next 20 pages or so are like that too
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah *continues permadeleting spree*

I don't know if someone controls ads in the site, but even ads in here are getting weird. Dating sites and weird useless products are all over the place.

@yoyo2000 I see what you did there. Anyway, using an ad blocker might be a solution. As for me, it is really much better that way.

it might be nicer for you, but please be aware that ads are the way this site generates some money to keep everything online. There are generally only two banner ads per page and they're really not in the way ;)

I happened to forget this fact! Thank you for pointing out all of that. You know, everytime I see advertisements on websites they make me go crazy that's why I've decided to install an ad blocker. However, now I realize I must really be a selfish person if I behave this way. Gonna unlist this site as soon as I get to the PC.

Feeling better about myself after being able to acknowledge again how it all works and telling myself to do a good deed. Thanks again!

HAHAH no it's alright and it was the right decision, as I have lost much of my interest in being an active user on here!

I know that ads are very important for any site and I just stated that Coldplaying's ads tend to be the weirdest ones I see online. Nevermind, I don't even care about them and I ignore them most of the time.

@ Google please stop giving yoyo2000 weird ads

I currently have one about Dutch public trasport I think, which is also weird because I am not Dutch
