    Hope Amazon I has to give the web-site big bucks to place their ads. Yes the Amazon ads are visible.

    Never ever bought from Amazon, not planning on starting.

    Hopefully, Rod is making money off of these since running the site isn't free.

    Would you like Wal-Mart Dot Com better?

    Apprently today is Amazon Prime Day, it is tending high on Twitter.

    I would rather see Cigar related advertising, with discount codes.:)

    BTW that was serious.

    As I recall, our fearless leader has had more than one offer to sell the ship. If he's making a few bucks on the ads....I'm OK with it.

    For that reason, this is the only page I visit that I disable my ad blocker and randomly click on the ads.

    People in business don't do it for fun, it is normally planned as a way to increase weath, pay your bill, or at the very least operation in the BLACK with positive cash flow.

    Heck if Rod has the opportunity to sell the forum, and retire with a nice sum of money, I say go for it.

    You know, I've tried to ignore you and keep my mouth shut, figured you'd make your place or not. Giving you the benefit of the doubt, as it were. But for you, a new member, to say "....Heck if Rod has the opportunity to sell the forum, and retire with a nice sum of money, I say go for it...."...with great respect, I have to ask; who the fuck are you, and what the fuck do you know..??

    You have no idea about the history of this forum, the great relationships, the friendships, the knowledge, the brotherhood that exists. How DARE you to suggest that Rod flush the forum, and give in to money? Now, I hope Rod figures out a way to make a tidy profit and if selling ads is a relatively inoffensive way to do so, I'm happy for him. You have NO idea about the people that have helped with money and personal effort to keep the ship running. You have NO idea about the folks that have been members for years, hell, decades.....shared the leaf, sold and traded, held passes, and learned from each other. Your statement speaks of your own ignorance and arrogance, you own "...hey, it can be bought cheaper elsewhere..." stupid attitude, without regard for the B&M people that have supported the membership. And it speaks volumes. You sir, are far too stupid to recognize the opportunity and brotherhood laying right in front of you. Way, way too stupid and far too arrogant.

    You sir, are an arrogant, stupid, annoying simpleton. You are boorish, insensitive, and ignorant. And an asshole to boot. The sooner that you lose this forum and move on to your next place of petulance, the better these forums will be.

    Please, respond and challenge ANY of my comments. If you can manage to wrap your eleven remaining sequentially firing brain cells around the concept.

    For the betterment of all, just quietly fuck off and go away.

    I sure you had wonderful parents who taught you manners well, it shows. Sorry my idea upset you so much, but it was just an idea for Rod to jump on an opportunity, if the right one comes his way.

    BTW people start businesses everyday, come up with inventions, then someone come along offer a tighty some of money for there business, invention, intellectual property, they sell, retire, or try and do it again. Just like they did the last time.

    That is how the world works unles your a factory worker, or maybe EMS hoping for a gold watch, pension, and maybe health insurance in old age.

    BTW I think you need change your user name to: BlindedByStupidity, your sure are not a rocket scientist.

    Perhaps, just perhaps, the entire world isn't driven by blind profit, but now and then by the kinship and brotherhood of like minded people. A concept that I'm sure your simple mind isn't able to comprehend.

    While it's very tempting to call you names based on your forum name, I won't stoop to your level.

    I'm still hoping you'll quietly fuck off and go away, but it seems apparent that you're too breathtakingly arrogant to realize when you don't fit in. So be it. Enjoy the ride.

    Oh, and insulting EMS people won't get you far in these forums. Nor will insulting police, EMT's, firefighters, or military. Or my parents. Keep it up, see how successful you are.
