Sorry I misunderstood - but it isn't working here.The opt-out I mentioned I said was on another forum.
A question of semantics. I grant you it is free in cash terms but in exchange you give screen real estate, view & concentration time and pleasure & benefit to the advertisers and one way or another that has value.The forum IS free. You choose to optionally pay (as do I) and that allows extra rights, such as removal of banner adverts.
Point taken it does include banner advertising. However taking it one step further the rules for traders advertising on the forum have a "fair use" clause ;
"VWT4 Forum Traders are now also permitted to advertise parts in the Parts For Sale forum. This is subject to a fair use policy with the intention of preventing the section becoming overloaded with parts from the same trader. If it appears as though too many parts are advertised for sale from one trader at any one time, posts may be deleted. Please exercise common sense in this area."
So perhaps it is about time this was enforced?
