I'm not sure the ad is going to catch on, but I also find the perception that this is promoting unhealthy living a reach as well.
For the people getting butthurt, don't worry. I'm certain gillette will still have its ads that suggest if you shave with their products you'll be snuggled from behind by a supermodel eager to run her hands over your babys bottom face.
boomslang: I had to look that one up. LMA0!

Whatever: Ten days later, I might have accidentally written this place's epitaph. RIP GEA. And happy Father's Day to the rest of the hard core.

Galgolfer: Just because people aren't using the Shoutbox feature doesn't mean the forum is dead.

Whatever: Hoping for the best, but while it may not be dead, it sure looks like it is at least on life support.

Whatever: 8500 posts since this thing started in February. Half of those in Politics. Anser used to do that in a good week.

Neal: The Masters and the US Open combined have only generated a handful of posts. That's pretty dead.

Neal: I don't think anyone even mentioned the PGA Championship.

Whatever: Koepka would be pissed off if he knew that.

brian11772: There are plenty of people visiting the site. We just need the visitors to start posting.

Whatever: I kinda like having this shoutbox as my personal blog.

CharlieD6: I, too, think the new GEA site is pretty dead.

CharlieD6: Is the Politics board available for viewing by Guests?

jaime59: None of the folders are hidden

CharlieD6: That's good! I'm hoping that some of the topics in the Politics folder might entice some of the Guests to join and participate in the discussions. The only problem is that lately we just haven't had any interesting discussions.

jaw2000: I tend to think it has the opposite effect. I think new readers come here to talk golf, see all that and leave. A very good reason that it was hidden on the old site. Only about 5 or so of you even post in that folder - for the most part.

CharlieD6: I don't see why the presence of the Politics folder would cause anyone to leave. If they don't want to participate in it, it's easy to avoid. Just don't click on it. Problem solved. There are several folders here that I never visit.

anonymous: fwiw, politics folder killed my interest in GEA.
