My gawd, a post which doesn't have anything to do with religion :o :rolleyes:

I say, I don't think there are enough ads on here, don't you agree? I think we need more ads, oh and lots of popups too.

Seriously, I don't know about the forums now, but the old escapemi forum was a free-run site, and the onlyway to help pay for it was to have lots of advertisment ads, to help pay for the site and to keep it going- I think? I remember someone like Zero or Brief saying it once a couple of months ago, and I can't remember exactly what he said. Does anyone remember? I know we need them for a particular reason, and I thought it was something to do with that?

No, I just want to find out if people hate the ads or not like I do, hence the poll.

What? WHY??

Well, I think most people have gotten over the fact that we're temporarily running loads of ads to pay a monster server bill this month. They are not permanent. econdly, your poll had logical flaws. Since you didn't include a "no", you were forcing people to agree with you, or to vote for the degrading option. And since you weren't planning on giving people any real say in the poll, why post one?

There was no need for a no, as no one would ever choose it. And I didn't FORCE anyone to vote anything, it's your choice to check thoes boxes and click submit. So please fix my final option.

I would have voted 'no' I love how you just assume everyone agrees with you all the time Mek, and when they don't you get annoyed.

So why have you done a meaningless poll?
Is it because you are a spammer?

It isn't meaningless. People can vote using the options I have given them or they can choose not to vote at all. Now SOMEONE fix my last question please, or I may have to submit a new poll.

You do realize that if you submit a new poll that is just as usless as this one, it will probably get changed again or closed... hmmmms I've got an idea for a poll, 'is Mek a trouble maker?'

Just make sure you have "No" as an option. Just to be fair.

I would have chosen no. I recognize that LF.com is only doing this temporarily to pay for utterly large server cost. However, I actually have patience. I'm waiting for it to end, instead of complaining, or making useless polls.

And I can't believe you take everything so seriously Mek! It's really quite amusing. Settle down and pop yourself full of Ridalin, or something.

Oh no.

Now we are going to be treated to a lecture on the "evils" of advocating drug-use.

*giggles* Dinghy, I agree, Mek takes things way too seriously, I know I take things seriously sometimes, but really I do know the difference between a joke and something seriously. I'm going to wait paitently for the lecture on how evil drug taking is :rolleyes:
