In the past 2 months I have seen an increase in thread views and overall member participation. I search a lot of sites and now I see adds from Guitar Center, Sweetwater, Musicians Friend and a lot of oters sites I buy stuff from all along the top and side of my screen. Correct me if I am wrong but does this advertising money not drive/help the site? And if so would not having the large majority of your main posters leave/banned negativley affect that revenue? My point is when someone creates a thread that ballons to 15+ pages (even if it is from arguing) and it gets thousands of views, even those who state they dislike the content of that thread are gettign banner ads running based of thier past retail site visits. So would it not be in your best interest to allow this (while keeping threats, exrtreme vulgarity and racialy/religious/prongraphic,etc offensive stuff in check) to keep the hits coming?

It's about time the moderators get a hold on this place. I was getting
Sick if Yankee and carter acting like god damn clown trolls and posting unrelenting hate. Finally some justice to be dealt back to the problem members of this community.
Just look you even drove poor Wayne off the deep end and into a forum regression.. No on deserves to be exiled like that.. Well actually maybe Wayne does..
Yankee, carter, although you are my bullies and my mom says not to talk to bullies, you two are pretty solid trolls.

At the end of the day the almighty $ rules all.
Good point Rcarter, but with all the hazing I would assume the knowledge base of SI is less valuable so of cource the moderators wanna keep it valuable to make those advertisers happy
Oh yeah, sorry I didn't address that. I would imagine the need for civil discourse outweighs the $$. I know I have ways within my own business to make more money and I often take the easier less troublesome path and accept less revenue for the piece of mind. For me money doesn't always rule my decisions, and maybe it doesn't for the forum.

What I'm saying is the following folks have left or been banned since Saturday morning:
Wayne (not that I'm crying over that one but still a loss)
I am probably missing some but you get the picture, these were not haters like Yankee and me, they were not posting porn or hardcore vulgarity, they were just having some fun and now we have lost them and their posts.

retracR just you so you know... online advertisers are not stupid. yes they go to appropriate sites but they don't just blindly throw their clients money around. they do read forums and if its a junk site (like all those banned were turning this place into) they will skip it.
This cleaning of house was the absolute best thing to happen to this place.
