I don't think I was on the list until after that post. FWIW, I would have put me on ignore too. Maybe I will..... won't have to suffer reading my tripe.

The bans on my thread went from 7 to 4 all on it's own. Any idea why? Thanks.

All "pre-bans" were removed. Bans were not removed if the "Banee" had EVER posted to that thread.

This was actually supposed to occur commensurate with go-live, but a problem with the procedure and other priorities caused its delay until today.

For more information on Subject Bans, please refer to: siliconinvestor.com

You've been stirring up trouble, detracting from the notably fine fine stock discussion on GEEC, eh? <g>

I'm working on the problem with slow ad delivery and have it at least partially solved.

1. We have a new advertiser on our homepage for the 336x280 spot. Any advertisers we deal with directly get their ads served by our inhouse server, which is extremely fast.

2. I've changed our 3rd-party rotation from BlueLithium/TribalFusion/ValueClick to TribalFusion/BlueLithium/ValueClick. I'd determined that the slow ads were coming exclusively from BlueLithium, so at least on the first several page views for ad-viewing members, ads will come from TribalFusion (relatively fast) rather than BlueLithium (very slow). It should be noted that the rest of the page loads quickly. It's just the ad that has been taking a while to load.

3. I've written to BlueLithium saying that they've got a major problem with ad delivery. In many cases, I can read a message and click the "Next" button before their ad has even loaded, which results in less real viewership of their ads, and, as a result, clickthroughs. Telling an agency that their performance is hurting their clickthroughs is a good way to really get their attention.

4. We are going to investigate a ban on Flash ads from BlueLithium since many of these seem to be served by DoubleClick, and could very well be the source of spyware installs I'm seeing reported.

Bob,

I really, really appreciate any steps SI takes to identify and eliminate spyware/adware/malware downloads.

It is a good thing to do for your members, and it is just plain good business, and I'm glad to see that you are on top of it.
