    We've still got Richard and BruceFan showing up. Me, you, Cnance, Nomax, Bruce, Richard and Chesty (maybe). If everyone would post daily and if the scammers left, we might have a slim chance of having some fun. Looks like Lexx left without letting us know why. Are we letting this place die or sticking it out until the end? If we're sticking it out get those threads up to date in Political Chat, I know taking the time to post a lot of thread topics gets really old when nobody replies.

    I truly think it's time for Admin to pull the plug or do something really new and different.
    I drop by to have a look but unless new and real members join, we are just delaying the inevitable. Too bad, this place once had lively debate.

I have proposed Christianity is a hoax because Jesus was God and not the son of God. I keep saying out dam spot, but no amount of mysticism or chanting works. ha. ha. I have even gone so far as researching the Bible to find more contradictions between the NT and OT for an understanding of God, or more ambiguities to upset us. Oh, oh, I am on the wrong track. I need to find an antidote!

    As for politics, I think there is much to post about President Trump's trade proposal with China, it is a really big deal. Will China make a deal with the US and stop stealing intellectual property? Will Trump follow through with his threat to increased tariffs with China after 90 days? Will the world self destruct by people eating to many soy beans. LOL
    I do check out RealScam on occasion and have mentioned their decline when posting here. Looks like the Scam topic is not as popular as it once was. Was hoping the owner of Scam would come up with a new theme. At one time he was going to change the forum name. None of the Mods thought the name was a good idea and the owner ended up not changing the name.

    Lots to discuss about Trump and Politics but you have to have members who are knowledgeable and enjoy a discussion forum enough to participate on a regular basis. A lot of Political forums on the Interent and Scam.com lost enough of it's members so that it's been on the decline for many years. This forum only had a few years of being really successful. The owner let Spam be posted, members couldn't see most of it and Mods deleted it. The spam posts made the forum seem much more active with posts then it really was. Helped the owner out with numbers etc. Lots of good posts and threads were accidentally deleted when so much spam was being deleted and members got really really angry all their hard work was being deleted. Some blamed the owner and thought he was being paid off to delete threads and posts. A long story but many reasons for this chat forums demise.

    A couple of years ago when we still had a number of members participating, the owner got ticked off or for whatever reason got rid of the Mods and used spam filters to control the spam. Now it seems he isn't using the filters any longer and is letting spam back onto the forum. I think he's a bought ready to let the forum go. You never know though he may have something up his sleeve we all would be interested in but because the owner makes money off of other Internet endeavors it does seem like this site will turn to what he can make the most money with.

    Looks like he's keeping it going with spam, we'll see how long that lasts. I'm really not into posting so I'll continue just taking a look once in a while. We'll see what happens, does feel like the end must be near but I've thought that for a number of years now. The owner will do what's best for him money wise.

    I just don't see how he is making money on this site with mostly spammers. I thought adsense was pretty strict about their advertising money and restricting spam was one of the requirements, or so I thought.

    I doubt this forum has given it's owner any revenue for a few years. I don't know how it all works but you have to have people look at the ads right? Do spammers click on ads? Can you make a deal with spammers? Can visitors click on ads or can you get credit for someone viewing an ad without being logged into the forum?

    As far as Adsense, doesn't look like they're being strict with this forum. This forum gets porn sites as spam at times and look at all the cussing that went on for a while. There was a time when this forum didn't allow all of that because of Adsense. Now this forum is almost 100% spam posts. I'm like you, I'm shocked the owner still has the ads.

    Re: What Happened To Lexx?

    I wanted to say too, at one time this forum was unique and the members, of course, made this forum. This forum never got boring, it had a number of gifted members who kept discussion interesting, more than interesting. I read other forums at times and joined a couple but it all gets boring fast. Haven't found anything that comes close to comparing to Scam.com when Scam was at it's peak. I could read for hours on this forum and never get bored.

    It is a shame it all came to an end, it was so much fun. I had more fun reading than I did participating, the forum had quite the crew. I doubt you could ever get a group like that together again.

    Yeah, you earn revenue from hits and from clicks on the ads. If someone click bombs you, your revenue can be terminated. It's possible that the Admin arranged to have people click on ads.

    But Google was very strict on advertising. And their policy is one strike and you're out. No exceptions. I had adsense on my blog and was racking up some decent advertising money then I had someone click bomb an ad and I got banned for life.
    You don't even get a second chance.

    That makes this even more mind boggling.

    That's why I mentioned before that I can't understand how adsense is still running on this site.

    Here's the adsense rules if you're interested. It's pretty strict.

    Thanks. I took a look at them back when the forum did lose it's Adsense. He obviously got it back. Yes it's strict and this forum isn't any longer. I've wondered for a while now how's he's doing it.

    There must be manipulation of some sort or he knows how to get around the rules but they were strict and no second chances so not sure how he's doing it.
