WTF is Going On - More Sponsored Forums??

So apparently Mazda is now sponsoring forums? Every time I open up one of the sub-forums a post loads at the top of the list to check out the new Mazda XX. I guess the Car Parts sponsorship wasn't making the Overloads enough money??

VS owns all kinds of forums. They don't give a fuck if the ads are relevant or not. They just care that the bills get paid. Pirate 4x4 died when Lance sold it. GCC is the only thing that keeps me coming back at this point.

Be glad VS passively doesn't give a shit about this place. They could be a lot more involved and implement all kinds of stupid bullshit to avoid drama with advertisers. It's why a lot of forums, social media sites, ect are so watered down and heavily censored anymore. Advertising killed the wild west days of the internet faster than regulators ever could.

I'm guessing sponsors are getting more for their money as the VALUE of pbb continues it's free fall.

Isn't the whole point of paying for a subscription to avoid ads?

Ad blocker plus shortcut directly to gcc works for me. I don’t even look at the rest of the forum anymore. Every now and then I might look at big dumb loads in the tow rig forum, but usually there’s an argument back and forth for a few pages over one minor and meaningless details in a pic and nothing good gets posted for a while.

Ad blocker will get rid of most the ads ones it doesn't kill initially just manually click and remove via it.

If they had a sense of humor they’d at least get Mrs butterworth’s to sponsor a forum.
