Hi,

I don't understand the whole discussion here :

Michael and his team invite us without having to pay for it to their website. We can customize all very interesting information without paying any buck for it. We can leave our personal opinion here in in this forum without having to pay for it.  It not only costs much time and effort for the whole team to run such an incredible source of great information, it also costs much money. So, if you will go on customizing these information without haviong to pay for it, you should consider that the Lula-team has to find a way to pay the bills. And, if animated ads pay a bigger portion if it, it will be ok, or, in clearer words, we don't have to judge whether it is ok or not !

In Germany we say ' if you don't like the innkeeper of a pub, take the other pub next corner'.

It is just my peronal view on such things !

Robert

I think Peter probably appreciates all this - he is just expressing an opinion, and Michael has said the ads are staying, so end of story.

I'm not trying to block ads in general, nor am I trying to get them removed from the site - I just find the these brightly coloured flashing adverts very distracting and they feel out of keeping with the ethos of the site (as I see it).

I realise that's part of how the site is funded. I have even been known to deliberately click on adverts and buy stuff through those, just to support a favourite site. Obviously that only applies when I want what's being advertised, but it has been known to happen ;)

I don't really think Leica/Art Photography are the target markets for these brightly coloured gaudy incessantly flashing things - unless they're in front of the camera maybe. I prefer things slightly more restrained and refined.

I'm just requesting an approach that's rather more Earl Grey, rather less Mountain Dew™...

It is a polite request, no more.

I'm sure Michael's more than capable of telling me to get bent ;)

I appreciate that it was sent with humorous intention, and if I were 12 years old I would have had a good laugh.
