    Why do you capitalize the word hell?

    GMI is not and never has been a fan site.

    You can disagree all you want. I didn't say it, nsap did. It's his site.

    Re: Not happy seeing FORD adds on a GM site

    If you are a true fan of a particular vehicle, then ads from other car companies won't offend you. You would already have your favorite and the other company can advertise all it wants, to no avail. On the flip side, if seeing an ad from another car company gets you all vaporlocked, then you take things way too seriously. :p

    Yes, GMI is an enthusiast's forum, nowhere in that sentence does it say that GMI is a "GM Enthusiast's" forum.

    GMI is not and never has been a fan site. That's a degrading term and does not reflect the purpose or professionalism of our site. We're not apologists or cheerleaders. This is a GM-focused enthusiast site that specializes in being the go-to place for enthusiasts (from all backgrounds) to discuss GM and its competition.

    Works for me if Ford wants to contribute advertising $$ towards maintaining a GM oriented website.

    Re: Not happy seeing FORD adds on a GM site

    Having Ford ads is one thing, disguising them as posts on a forum is my problem. I noticed them right away but others may not and it redirects you to another site.

    Re: Not happy seeing FORD adds on a GM site

    This is usually what I think when this issue comes up:




    Again, the ads are through Google. If you want to complain, go to them.

    GMI (and FIN) are first and foremost enthusiast websites. This site is not regulated to "GM Only","Nothing but GM" or whatever one would think.

    Re: Not happy seeing FORD adds on a GM site

    Most of the Google ads are directed towards YOUR searches and queries. Others rotate through the forum. Who comes to a forum to look at ads anyways? Ignore them.

    You know what I hate more, though? Threads in the wrong section.
