The only real value of trapshooters is to sell stuff. For whatever reason, items sell on that site a lot faster than on shotgunworld.

He still visits the site multiple times a day and his rank is just "premium member" now. To say he was an unpopular admin is a huge understatement. The only people who seemed to like him were the members who kissed up to him so as to not get banned by him. :roll:

I like trapshooters a lot, haven’t had any issues getting banned. I get that the site owners need to generate income. They are not a nonprofit. I do have to say that I don’t really go for the ads in the middle of the threads column, and then blackmailing/charging $20 to get rid of them. Having said that, it is not My forum. If it gets too bad, I just won’t participate anymore. IMHO the ads are a little over the top over there now. Still, a lot of shooters, and info over there. Note! I just wanted to update My post. As others, have said, it makes a huge difference in the amount of ads in the threads comments, and off to the side of the page, if You are actually logged in! I had not tried that yet, and it reduced the number of ads by about 90%. If You have not done this, try it. It made a huge difference. Silly Me, I thought the page would be the same, regardless of whether, or not I was logged in.

Have you tried using something like AdBlockPlus?
Even work for the Guerini ads here; I am on a few of their other sites and I don't get any ads
ADBlock Plus worked for me.

What bizzactly is "premium" member status? Initially, I assumed it was likely post count, but I see it has been assigned to both high and lower post count members there. So, maybe it's for those that pay the $19.99 fee to clean up some ads. Just something I heard there. :?: :?: :?:

That's exactly what it's for. Vertical Scope will get their money one way or the other.
