    Regarding political ads on the site

    Fanatics -

    I just wanted to write you all a note regarding political ads that have been and will continue to appear on the site from now through the end of the election. As must of you know, until this thing is over, it's nearly impossible to avoid ads of this nature. Please know this:

    --- Cyclone Fanatic does not endorse either political party.

    --- Cyclone Fanatic does not control political ads that appear on the site. They all appear through third party vendors.

    --- Obviously, we'd rather go without having these on here as politics constantly divide people but like every other media outlet in the world, they do bring extra revenue our way - extra revenue that a FREE website can't really turn down.

    Thank you so much for understanding. We appreciate it very much. Have an outstanding day.

    Chris

    Gotta do what you've gotta do.

    I really respect the balance you strike between conciliatory and deal with it. Really nicely written.

    Never mind the political ads, but can you please stop the audio from starting automatically?

    Pay the bills, CW, pay the bills. Whether we always think about it in this context or not, we all appreciate a free site.

    My fingers have trained themselves to automatically mute the sound when one starts up which is not the easiest of tasks on my laptop since I have to press the Fn key to mute.

    Do what you gotta do to keep the site free for some of the best fans in the country...we can deal with the political ads for a couple more months

    Nonetheless, the current ad with romney and communist flag is simply bad taste, wrong and makes me wonder who sponsors are.
