Kenny,
Thanks for sharing that. As far as I know, you are the first to give that perspective. It's an interesting one.

This thread got me to create an account just so I could post about it :-)

I came to it because for a while now, when I on occasion visit a JavaRanch thread, I've seen the fake JRebel 'posts' and they really annoy me. I Google'd JRebel link spam wondering what other people thought about it because I thought they were just that, link spam posts that JRebel was making. This puts a sour taste in my mouth towards JRebel and while I am aware of their products I'm put off by their advertising approach in this case. After giving it more then the few seconds thought I had at that point I realized that clearly the operators of JavaRanch approve of this or else they would be fighting to clean it up.

Then I found this thread which lays things out.

I've got no problem with a site making some money from advertising. From my perspective though I would rather see an honest banner ad. I wouldn't have had the negative reaction to JRebel that I initially did in this case. It didn't get me to click on it, it just made me think they were a shady company.

FWIW I frequent Stack Overflow way more then any other resource site. Its for a number of reasons but one of them is the user eperience. They have a fantastic user eperience. No fake spam link posts, now sign up to / login to read the answer nonsense that some other sites have.

(and yes the ' 'yz key - can you guess which one - broke on my keyboard today)

For what it's worth, we hate that too!
