The only advertisment you have that i would ever look at is BABE OF THE DAY.  So middle finger to your advertisements.  Give me a break.

Middle finger is the word.

Dear Covers, I'm not sure why you've done this, perhaps it is because of advertisers complaints......but I have to point out the obvious, your advertisers all have scantilly clad women on their websites and gawd damn it, they're promoting gambling ....I mean seriously?? We're getting moral instructions from the same people who promote gambling??? It reallly is disgusting, the hypocrisy....

Why bother to pin a thread like this to the top of the boards.  It's obvious you don't give two shits about user feedback.  This is just another slap in the face.

This has gotta be a joke. I used to love you Covers. However, pretty soon I can tell I will stop visiting this site due to your belligerent addition of advertising. I see it happening at other sites too and these marketing people are DUMB. Stop listening to them. Thanks for providing a good service while it lasted. It's just become hilarious now.

Typical garbage money hungry douches that only care about the cash and we are all meaningless.  Way to sell out and not stand up for what's right!  I hope you guys nut up....dumb fools

Everyone looks like an alias.. The Avatars are one of the things that made this site unique

Advertisers are useless without users to click on those ads!

I used to think Covers cared about the user experience.  I'm already using the forum less. 

Something similar has happened over at therx.com.  Banner adds everywhere after they redesigned their website.  Cover was always miles above that other site.  Not anymore.  Their decision to favor the advertisers has eroded this site in a two mere weeks.

You only had to look at Covers top 10 recommended books a couple of years ago to see how cheaply they had sold their soul. Bodog, BetEd just to name a couple. 

Not to mention that they couldn't give a $hit when one of their recommended books would stiff customers. They couldn't give a crap about their users and this pathetic thread regarding avatars is further proof.

This site went to $hit 2 years ago!

Get that money covers!!  We all HATE everything going on with covers but darn us!  After all, we're just the customer.


What's another ad here and there, and popping up here and there, and no avatars, and never any progress just regression.  Sheesh.

Let me point out that I've been a long time poster - since you won't be able to recognize me without checking the stats that go with every post.

1) attractive woman are not offensive

2) anyone that would find an attractive women and maybe a pair of boobs barely concealed offensive is probably not gambling

3) you guys, covers, are a bunch of person. and to act like this censoring  is no big deal, like working your way to plastering every inch of this site in advertisements is not a big deal is disingenuous. i hope you guys are enjoying the extra cash...bite me

Hey Mods - I have been on here over 5 years and think the site is GREAT!  You guys do a great job with keeping the crap to a minimum.  I hope this avatar thing is just temporary.  I completely understand that money talks, but hopefully you guys know we like the avatars - many users are known by their avatars.  Seems like usage is down this year - a lot of veterans are not here....Would like to keep it user friendly.
