Well true, but it is annoying that users just post it.
It is pissing me off, I come on for new threads and sigh it's just adverts, adverts, nothing great.
We need some proper banter, not loads of adverts
Besides, it's a community not a advertising forum, and that's what 60% of people do! They need to pay in some form, such as taking part.
I try to keep it to 1 a month but I always take part in the forums I use, it is a good idea also, because you can put your sig in and so on.
Then your posts have use.
But I understand you might get spammers
