    Nope, that's where DigitalLine.Com comes in the scene. An anti-DP forum that will be created or that exists already

    Sorry if it isn't funny, I drunk too many beers I guess, but I found it funny at the time of writing

    Well of course I don't think they make that much money through AdSense, but they could always run CPM and earn tons of $$$ that way. Forums are better suited for CPM instead of PPC anyways, more pageviews and less likely the chance anyone even wants to click your stupid ads

    • Because you have a bold name

    • Because it looks more secure (although it isn't)

    I understand what you mean man, but some people are that good that they have zero infractions even after all their posts

    the mods dont' just "start to hate you"

    I've thought about buying the membership just for the extra sig links
    I don't use anything else that's included.
    I offer vBulletin Services (5+ years experience & over 600+ documented clients)
    I help run a successful Admin Forum and play around on a vBulletin Connect setup.

    It is a kind of elitism to me.

    Many popular forums begin to act like elite corporations, pretty sad to see this kind of mentality developped on internet. Forums are managed with experienced volunteers helping others, not hierarchical voluntarism or elite voluntarism and I am not even talking about totalitarism forums.

    Some forum owners lost the meaning of internet forum.

    Internet forums:
    People participating in an Internet forum may cultivate social bonds and interest groups for a topic may form from the discussions.
    Internet forum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.
