Hopefully they'll figure out a way to survive without the "help" of your great TRs.

It's probably a dream of most people here to make good money pursuing a passion. My passion is nothing but a money drain and my income source has nothing to do with it.

I buy the magazine whether I read it or not. Its the price of admission.

I am entitled to nothing and try to appreciate what is provided to me.

And for what it's worth, I'd rather read about a forest service campground than a fancy lodge or island I will never go too in my lifetime.

The classifieds section used to have some great ads. Can we bring those back?

These are my two favorite lines. (Except, in the first sentence, "money grabbing" should be hyphenated. In the second—try to avoid ending a sentence with a preposition.)
An example to look at...
"Maybe now you can actually pay the photogs for the pics you "bought" from them but just forgot to pay up on, you money-grabbing douche bag?"

I hope Tom sells about 10 times more ads, so he can keep paying for this tree house and maybe even make enough money to keep Clyde on the road for a little longer.

No question, there's a lot to dislike about the new look. But nobody has to see the ads. Making them invisible is easy, and free. Even for ultra badass internet super tough guys.
There's no place for this kind of rational in this thread, no matter how true the statement...now take it back! Um wait...Take it back, asshole?

Seriously, what is $8 a year more going to do to one's wallet? if you can afford a fishing license or a tank of gas, fucking get over it!
I paid the purveyor of my local forum $20 about 2 years ago. The place fucking sucks now! In part, the owner is to blame coz he just doesn't give a fuck and a band of absolute winners who are on that "I'm a fly fisherman bro" bandwagon are ruining it with their waste of space comments, vanilla as fuck reports (some of whom even had the audacity to try post a fuckstick intro on the Drake and got shitcanned for good measure) and of course, their use of religion to guilt one into feeling they should start praying.
Like it or leave. I like the Drake. The blokes on here are as solid as they come, kinda like a healthy shit the morning after a banquet dinner. Just slides out easy, and you burn like four to five tickets, not those disastrous thunder shits you get when you eat a chicken vindeloo and end up using an entire roll in one sitting and have to text someone to drop off another roll and still end up having to shower upside down
Shit is everywhere, but this is a grand shitshow. As for the ads? Well, do you throw your remote at the TV or punch your radio in your car when you hear/see an ad? It's what makes alot of business related shit float, bray...
Carry on, Nemo.

Don't know about that...but I understand there is spell Czech...I'm not sure where you can find it at.

Since Nemo's broke, you owe him one of these.

Whining about some ads on a free site? Really?

Meanwhile, 80% of you whiners keep paying $1200+/yr for cable TV, which has commercials that actually interrupt the shit you're trying to watch, instead of just sitting off to the side.

I'd bet that the cost of running this site is at least $400/mo and each refresh costs Nemo $2k+.

Seriously, quit whining.

Yet another great drakian meltdown and grammar lesson. A valuable reason to be here. I feel like one of the terrified and mesmerized bystanders in Shapiro's poem "Autowreck." And without doubt, ending a sentence with a preposition is faux pas up with which I shall not put.
Life is a whole lot more simple when you plow around the stump.
