That's my main concern. I don't see how KTOG can make any claims to an unbiased position where this is concerned and I want to insure that it never happens here. Paid advertising has its place, but it throws the whole bias issue straight up the flagpole. Example: I never read gun magazines... because their reviews are all suspect. They rely on an advertiser's revenue and, generally, will never take a chance on ticking one off badly enough to cut off the flow of the advertising money.DDGator said:I understand your position on paid advertising. I don't think its inherently evil. If moderators treat advertisers differently, you create a biased discussion.
