You seem to quite strongly dissaprove of people using this site to "solicit any buisness" and yet I find it quite ironic that there are adverts constantly popping up not only at the edge of the screen, but now actually on links I want to click. This is actually, and please refer to the ASA's guidelines on website's external material article, not allowed as I have no way of opting out of going to another site because they will pop up so suddenly just before I click on a link so that I have no choice whether I go on their sites or not.
Your magazine is full of adverts (far too many, as is the norm with Haymarket publications) and I'm dissapointed to see that this site contains too many also. It therefore leads me to believe that this site was created for one single purpose - not to promote the magazine, but to contain as many adverts per publication as possible.
And to be honest, there is no excuse for this. Rival publications such as Hi-Fi Choice, Hi-Fi World and Stereophile Magazine do not contain anywhere near as many advert either in their magazines or on their sites. Yes, it may be argued that Hi-Fi World and Hi-Fi Choice do not have a true forum, but Sterophile is a very comprehensive site (far more so that What Hi-Fi's site) and contains a huge forum also and yet their site does not have adverts that literally "pop up" infront of where I am viewing. Please do not also claim that this is a problem with my computer and/or its software as all of the computers I have used suffer the same problems.
I cannot see why we are not allowed to "solicit buisness" very simply on our signatures (you provide a miserly limit on the character count) when the site is littered with adverts! As a member of the What Hi-Fi forums who has made over 2,000 posts and a subscriber to the magazine, I feel I am being let down by adverts and often put off re-subscribing to the magazine because of the attitude of the moderators.
I do hope that my views will be considered and that they will not just be deleted so that others cannot view my opinion.
