Why are we subjected to this intentional abuse Bob Stewart ?   This is RUDE !   Don't AR management get it ?   It's NOT the ad we are opposed to.   Put your ads up and help pay for the platform.   We are fine with that !

 JUST STOP SLAPPING US IN THE FACE !

It is unnecessary to be so inconsiderate.   There is a happy medium.
