The forum makes a loss, with the handful of advertising that we have it just helps towards costs.
Whilst I've not discriminated with who can and can't advertise, I've also not removed any open criticism about those advertisers. Don't worry you've chased them away.
I contribute many hours and personal funds into this forum. I keep it stable, fix it when it has issues and enjoy reading the posts on it. It makes me feel good knowing I'm facilitating a growing community.
The traffic is up! See the below year on year report:
Many of you don't know me, it's not a good look casting judgement on someone you've never met before. There are a lot of assumptions taking place with just a couple of members.
I respectfully ask that those members keep posts related to the topics they're in. I would also be very greatful if those same members can refrain from being rude to others.
If you have anything personal you'd like to discuss, please DM me your phone numbers and I'll call you.
