A Bit Of Pimping

Post by A.C. Douglas » Thu Mar 05, 2015 7:55 am

Several years ago I set up and managed for some five years an online classical music and opera board named, cleverly, Classical Music & Opera Forums (CM&OF). I shut it down almost exactly two years ago as the host of the board, FreeForums.org, began using "ambush ads", a noxious and underhanded device whereby ads are disguised as hyperlinks within texts as if they were legitimate hyperlinks inserted by the author of the text, and I wanted no part of or association with such low-rent pimping. Since that time, FreeForums.org has been acquired by CrowdGather, a publicly traded company (OTCQB), and the "ambush ads" are now gone from FreeForums.org-hosted boards except for non-registered visitors ("Guests") to those boards. As the "ambush ads" were my only objection to FreeForums.org's hosting (in all other respects it's a first-rate and reliable host), I've decided to reopen the CM&OF afresh. For any interested, the CM&OF may be reached at URL:

Hope to see you there.
