First let me start this reply with this wonderful quote from the very pages of CCL itself:
Discussion, Bug Reports, Feature Requests and Suggestions
That is the description of this subforum, so it is exactly what I did, report a bug.
Now of course I couldn't make a bug report with out one of my nasty little followers reply with something snooty or asinine.
now for the fun follow ups :)
There he goes Approver bashing again... only this time he broke the rules and name called... tsk,tsk! Someone please strike the offending comment from the record and ask all parties to be nice.
Actually I was A-YLOB bashing or is he now only defined as a Approver? No where in my reply did I say anything about approvers! In fact after comiccastle last explained to me about how not all are bad I made sure not to lump them all together, but if I had you would definitely have been added since like A-YLOB you didnt contribute to the post other then to say something nasty about me.
Check out the facts - dude's been here since freakin' 2012! That means he's plunked down at least $30, maybe even $60. $60 earns you a lot of respect around this place. Combine that with a handful of half-assed CRs and you get the king of the site.
So nice to se you leave your bridge to make yet another worthless post. Now I never asked for or wanted your respect! You are nothing to me so not sure why I would want your respect.
Though I don't really believe anybody should have to "post here" or hunt down an AHOLE approver's sig to get help - It's much easier to just pull their head out and go the bottom of ANY CCL PAGE
and click "Contact Us
" OR "Support
" to get the exact same info. But only if they aren't lazy cry-babies with magnificently over-inflated senses of importance and
if they have half a wit in 'em. That's pretty big "if"s though.
It's almost like this entire thread was started only to... oh wait, who's the troll again?
This thread was started as per CCL description, so read above.
Honestly, I've read and reread Dylan's original post, and I can't find anything that'd be considered negative or a bash against CCL in general. And yes, he has a right to be frustrated because he HAS mentioned this problem before, with obviously no resolution to it.
Recently I got a new mobile phone, and I get notifications of a virus when I go to certain CCL pages, and it appears to be stemming from some of the ads. It needs to be fixed, and dog-piling on Dylan doesn't solve anything.
Thanks "Thunder" :)
In fact when the last popup was hitting I went out of my way to track down the offending URL and sent to "The Valiant One" his reply was they couldnt really do anything about it, which is wrong, they just chose not to do anything about it. They instead chose to wait out that rotation of banners until its campaign had ended.
The assumption(s) here seems to be that CCL is actively doing something malicious.
They are, they host the banners with popups, which by the way they "CHOOSE" to do.
These issues are caused by pop-up banners, which are on every site on the web.
Really, well then you need to stop visiting so many porn sites, because the "ONLY site I have visited in the last 6 months with a pop up is this one, but then again I dont visit "Trolls in Lust" as often as you do.
CCL has ZERO control over what their advertisers do, and when such ads are found they do get rid of them. It is not reasonable to believe that they can/should have the ability to rule every single site on the web... banner ads are not CCL, they're basically holes in the site that show OTHER sites.
For someone who has used the internet for more then a year, your stupidity is showing. Banners do not just magically appear on a website. The owners of CCL contacts an "ad" company and agree to place a banner rotation on a website for X amount of money per click or per impression. They then place the companies code in the website. now if the company places banners with popups, phishing, malware or any other nasty non friendly thing the owner can simply remove the banner code and find a new company.
CCL has chosen not to do that. Instead they have continued to display banners with popups in an attempt to monotize the forum. They have chosen not to switch to a different company like say "google Ads" that doesnt allow popups because it might pay a penny less. CCL has chosen to run off customers thinking that a penny is worth it. Yet it has been proven over and over sites that have popups have less visitors, or repeat visitors then sites with no popups.
When these issues are identified, CCL does take the offending ad down (am I repeating myself?).
Actually they dont! The last banner that was causing the pop up wasnt removed, they simply waited for it to expire! They did nothing so wrong again.
Cater to ALL your customers, not just the "big spenders", or you'll lose ALL your customers.
So I am not a customer? Oh wait I am, and how much I spend has no bearing on this post. In fact I could care less if I only spent $10 a month I still wouldnt want phishing popups.
