CardPlayer is anonline poker magazine that doesn't sell anythingexcept a published version of its magazine, and FullContact Poker is a blog and forum site for DanielNegrenau and doens't sell anything (unless you couldtshirts that say Full Contact Poker on them), so howare those problems?Full Contact Poker is a forum site primarily aboutpoker and not a gambling site per se, so I amconfused. They don't sell anything, and don't spamanything, so why would they be blocked? I will howevertake it by that answer that there is no intention offixing it?Ray  --- John Smith  wrote:> >> Several porn and gambling sites have been blocked by> the owners as  our members didn't like the referral spam  > they were  getting from them.>  > Also, I need you to remove the three Poker links in> your Links  section, they are considered Ads.  As stated>  in the FAQ (linked at the bottom of each page):>  > Am I allowed to have banners or Ads on my ModBlog?> Only if the ad is for goods or services that you own> and provide.

Basically, my feeling is quickly becoming that these people are in the "too stupid to live" category, and it's time to move my meager traffic elsewhere. My two original thoughts were either blogspot or to try to hit up Jayson Webber for blog space. Does anyone have any input for places, which they like better and why...Ray
