Really, what gives? I understand the site is finally generating revenue from banner space -and we are all more than delighted to have TalkBass. But - McDonalds? Why? sure the only reason they would think about giving you money to post a banner is the demographic of the site and the sheer numbers involved. How ever - at what cost. Save my personal beliefs against Fast Food, this is a Bass oriented site - so I think the banner space should be saved for bass oriented ads. This is where others make cracks about the relevance of Mickey D's to playing bass. Har Har. I'd really appreciate it if you let the banner space agreement with McDonald's run out and not renew their sponsorship. Thanks Paul, Michael ps I also have a thread going on about this in the Off-Topic forum in an effort to get more user responses.
