    Does this site need to take political ads?

    The ISU fanbase is already divided enough.

    Do we really need to have political ads on this site. Especially what could be called attack ads.

    Thank you.

    I take it you are referring to the Terry Branstad ads in the top left... those are auto-placed by google, iirc, and not really controlled by CF.

    I do not see them. You must be typing Branstad too much. Whoops.

    Re: Does this site need to take political ads?

    Every political candidate and/or party has the right to advertise. It doesn't bother me. Whether I see an add for or against Terry Branstad it will have little effect on who I choose to be Governor. I may be one of the few; however, I read up on a candidate's positions on several key issues before I cast my vote. Plus ads, even political ones all help in keeping this site free.

    Yeah, pretty sure those aren't controlled by CF, but even if they were, a free CF is worth it.

    I see Ann Coulter being advertised now, as well as a Bad Idea t-shirt. Coincidence or just funny?

    If Google ads, disregard, if not, the point is still as such.
    Since Google, mods feel free to hoist a "never mind"
    and delete the thread.

    Just because my way of thinking is better than yours does not mean you have to get mad at the political adds.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.
