Hey

Those are our native sponsored ads. Specific users get to see it based on their location. We will be inquiring about what kind of ads will be sent to the community. We'll update you when we have more information.

There are suppose to be NO Ads visible on this site when members are logged-on -period.

Member are/have signed up for Supporting & Lifetime Memberships with the understand that they would NOT see any ads, but these new posts are violating this....?!?

In general all members on this site HATE unsolicited/non-supporting vendor ads.

This is considered SPAM and I have deleted/Banned over 1,400 of Spammers that are doing this exact same thing that is occuring now. I even tried to remove/delete/ban these Spammer Posts, but was unable to banish these uninvited visitors to OUR site.

OMG - Mazda - Please not on this Site!!!

We're trying to conduct TOTM Polls, but there are these two Big, Giant, Huge, over an 1" Posts right at the beginning of the forum;
https://www.thenewx.org/forum/31-tru...ear-totm-toty/ - WTH - Take them Out of the 'Sticky Zone'....

Mazda lost me in any future interest!!

Hello there,

Seems like this is happening network-wide
We're aware of this and it's escalated.
Will provide info once we get an update on this.

Sorry for the inconvenience,

I agree - paying members authorized charges to their credit cards with the express understanding that they would not be subject to these ads. It was a material term of the agreement.

Either refund the membership fees in full or remove the ads. You can't have it both ways.

Personally these ads infuriate me, in that, because I live in New Mexico, they are assuming I'm Mexican and speak Spanish, so these ads are being posted this way. I don't need this garbage on this site - so please remove it ASAP!!!

Maybe you are deleting them faster than I can see them, but what I find kinda ironic is I've never paid for a subscription here and have a much more ad-free experience thanks to my ad-blocker than those of you who paid for the privilege. I'd be steamed as well.

Also doesn't bode well as motivation for me to ever become a supporting member.

Actually I don't see those ad's at all, maybe it's ad's only paying members can see? I temporarily disabled my ad-block and logged out and still didn't see them.

Thanks for taking a firm stand against spam. For most users with half a brain it's a wasted effort on the advertisers part anyway.
