I don't want to sound like a spoiled internet brat who expects everything for free, but having them under most posts certainly makes threads much 'busier' looking.

And not in a good way either IMHO. Now this doesn't mean I don't mind some level of advertisement and whatnot, I'm just not sure that throwing the "sponsored deals" link into every post is the way to go. When it was just in the first post it was fine, didn't really distract from rest of the content, but under almost every post?

Pretty much, if you guys are going to do this, then at least do it in a way its not annoying, or distracting from the content of the site. All were asking is, if your going to do it, do it in a way that seems seamless, and fits in.

LOL. That's one of the reasons I don't spend much time on EVGA or XS. I like to think my sig is tasteful, and small. Kind of like me.

Honestly, I'd rather see the deals in a sidebar, or at the top of the page with the other ads.

As opposed to 99% of the forums that allow picture filth and all manner of image signatures which eat up more space than the text the poster types?

Strange that 9 words would be so much more of a distraction for you.

You expressed an opinion, others have expressed theirs. Enjoy your nap, you sound like you need it.
