My current subscription to PC-A is about to run out. I have subscribed for a number of years. I also enjoy using this web site. Over the last few days, however, whenever I access the site, an irritating advertisement for the Financial Times geets me, animates all over the user ID and password boxes, forcing me to lose part of my life waiting to sign in. Should I renew my subscription to PC Advisor or - as requested-subscribe to the Financial Times instead? :)
All you need to do is click the 'X' and it will go away. The adverts provide income for an extremely expensive site. Helpline cost between 50p and £1 a minute..here is free and dare I say it, better advice. It costs you nothing so why not click on a few of the adverts or if you use avant browser click here(IMHO much better than IE) you will not see them ;-))
There is no need to put up with any adverts . You just need to adjust your set up . Though they are not that bad, and a small price to pay for some excellent advice. I have tried several other Magazines , but PC-Advisor seems to have the best mix of useful information
The only reason that a great deal is made about the cost of running the site is because a great deal is constantly made about the advertising. If nobody mentioned that I wouldn't have to remind anyone about the cost would I?
The truth lies in what I say - I'm not a liar, as you seem to imply. This site costs a great deal to maintain and operate. I hope that's clear enough?
Turning to you, nathan doin, I know that some of the ads can be irritating, but we really do need them, and usually we manage to keep them in check. The problem is that if we insisted on ads being so discreet as not to annoy a single forum user we probably wouldn't attract any advertisers. After all, the whole purpose of an ad is to sell, and it can't do that if nobody sees it.
