I'm going to try to be brief, especially for those with short attention spans........
LiveLeak has continuously attracted more and more news hounds and major media outlets as a source for interesting and unfiltered views of the world around them. As it grows exponentially, it draws in advertisers who know they will be reaching an important demographic. We have seen many of these 'viral ads' that would to most seem to clog and annoy many of us. It bothered me at first, then I realized how important it is to the ability of LL to pay for server upgrades, hosting costs and a plethora of other things for upkeep. A clubhouse has grown into a mansion and it's not cheap.
I see a lot of people complain about advertising but if you take a step back you will realize it's ESSENTIAL to providing a place for creativity, freedom of expression and breaking/interesting media and stories. Even for the trolls and terrorists.
We all get to butt heads, or agree. It's what has addicted me to this place.
I agree that some of the advertising has no place, such as the personals BS. That's just my opinion as it can be a turn-off for some (even though I visit the "sexy" section from time to time, lol)
I would love to see an HD section....I would love them to fix the buggy comment section (I would say we all have to agree that that is absolutely the most annoying thing) Taking all that time to write something profound (or ridiculous) and to have it disappear into the Matrix, is depressing at times. (copy your text before submitting every comment, lol)
Hayden is loved and hated but you have to admit he is pretty damn accessible considering the legions of members.
My point being is give them a break on the advertising as it will help continue to evolve LL.
I needed to spew this.....
