What's With All The Golf Course Posts

Recommended Posts

Why all of a sudden is the forum filled with golf course posts?  It's insensibly boring for the sensible ones among us, who support Churchill's view that golf is just a way of spoiling a nice walk.

I do like golf but yes, it is annoying and smells of blatant advertizing.

 

Well, since this forum is free to join and read, the owners can do as much advertising as they want.

 

On the other hand, I agree with you, and it looks all a bit like desperation, and is driving their users away, and advertisers and users are connected in a vicious circle

For some people golf is just too difficult so they don't enjoy it. The ads do get ridiculous on here

That was when several new topics were posted late yesterday that were posted in one of the forums under the Golfing in Thailand heading. 

Have you seen any today.

It seems to me that you have to actively click on those "links" - not so difficult to avoid, is it? 

 

Pretty sure the point is that for those (including myself) that browse the site via the "new content list" end up with almost half a page of ads/spam links until such time is they sink into the depths of oblivion - that is the annoying part which would be negated by spreading out the posts over the week rather than the regular mass post dumps.

Indeed and probably why my mouse scroll hates me.  There are way, way too many forums - but we seem to be making more.  It has become almost impossible to find specific forums as by the time you get to them you have forgotten why you even wanted to go there.

I don't have that problem fortunately. Just spam posts that show up in the list with no way around it (ignoring a poster doesn't remove the posting from the lust so no point even trying that).
