There's an interesting thing about the ad network that we currently use. It presents ads based on sites that you visit. Practical example, I recently bought some skimpy undies for my nearest and dearest for St. Valentine's. Now every time I visit this site, I'm presented with ads to buy more skimpy undies or related products.
I understand that many sites do this, but I can assure you, I've never visited any porn related site that would generate an ad for me to meet hot Asian women. If shopping online at Victoria's Secret generates this type of ad, then perhaps I need to contact VS.
About the pm-ing, I was not aware I had to friend someone to do this. It was not like that on the old format. I'm not on any other forum or message board, so I don't know how they work. I'm a bit anti-social when it comes to generic places like Facebook, but I do love dogs and sharing with people who have the same passion.
I understand that participation ebbs and flows. I think the biggest thing that has driven away people has been the inability to stay logged in. I don't access this site by anything but a desktop computer - I don't have a fancy cell phone or notebook. This login issue is not a top concern for me, but I can see how it might be for others.
We can only teach new members if they come back. How many times have we seen posts looking for "urgent" help, and then the poster never comes back and tells us what happened? Do you think people soliciting for money ever come back? Probably not. I understand you can't judge a person's intent when they sign up, so screening would be next to impossible.
At any rate, I appreciate you "listening", Jonathan. I know life is constantly changing and I try to roll with it the best I can.
