sorry...can't stand those silly flashing dogma ads anymore.
Not trying to be self righteous and claim blatant commercialism is beyond tastefullness (even though it is) or even that the price tag has taken the capitalist supply demand parodox to embarrasing extremes (even though it has). That stuff bugs me but I can accept it. You guys are a great resource and I look forward to reading what you have to say every day. I know ads are necessary to keep this great site running. The truth is I can't handle the flashing. It's far two annoying and intrusive.
So flame away and tell me I'm a big baby, I won't be around to read it. If however, anyone cares enough to let me know when the ad has gone, I'd really appreciate if you could email me at jsimpsonATopermailDOTcom. Thanks guys. You've been great...hope to see you soon.

I appreciate the fact that a Sponsor is needed for the site to exist, but the Sponsor should realize that an annoyance is not appreciated by anyone.....this advertisment is relative to a 'dripping faucet'.
The Stop button works great.....

I'm perfectly fine with ads in general, but Comp Cyclist's Pinarello and Colnago ads have the interesting result of turning folks off of Comp Cyclist and the RBR message board.

I think most computer users ignore and do not patronize companies who use tactics in advertising.

If I wanted flashing ads, I'd go to an adult site. It would be nice if Comp Cyclist got the message and revised their ad.
mine doesn't flash, boo hoo..nmrwbadley

Am I being cheated, as I don't have any flashing ads.

Yes! This is a great site, and I love to read about what will put someone over the edge!
