Hey, hold up guys. You can't ask OMP or any other co to "Pull their ad" it aint thier fault. They have a business to run, and they can't live off ProBros alone. Are you gonna tell Billy Hell he has to quit HL if they keep ads over there? Doesn't Extreme flight have ads there? Tower does.
Should we boycot anyone who has ads in Model Aviation? After all, AMA is a bigger threat than RCU to our flying!!
I'm many $ and time into a fledgling business of my own. I've built the whole thing around RCU as my main source of customers. Do you believe I should give up my aspirations because of this?
ON THE OTHER HAND......if you want to hurt RCU in the $ area, you need competition. And I don't mean here at ProBro central. We'll always be the 1%ers, right? So as far as site views, we'll never compare to the Big Guys. Marc won't miss our numbers, he'll miss the content we provided and the views that generated.
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo.....if you want advertisers to leave RCU, you gotta help build up annother site. Annother "all around" site. Like RC Groups. I have a feeling that Mike's no happier than we are. He's said so on the Yahoo list. I bet if there were a place where he could get the same views for the same $$$ he'd leave RCU in a heartbeat (I don't know this, I'm just guessing)
Just my $0.02
