but, does anybody else feel that the cigerette advertisements on c and c have gotten a bit much?  I mean granted they help greg in big ways, and this is no way commenting on gregs hard work and up to date info on pta, but serioulsy...when the largest advertisement is "tax free cigs" i find it kind of obnoxious

I've never liked it, but if it's necessary, how can we complain?

I guess we can still complain. I really don't like it. The picture ad is going too far.

But at least he's not advertising huge corporations.

I'm just glad there's actually an informative website for PTA really. I know that might sound robotic or PTA-fanboyish but it's true, not all directors have a good website. Like Kubrick doesn't have one.

He's dead.  Hate to be the one to break it to ya... ;)  I mean, it's not as if any late-breaking news about Kubrick's corpse planning a huge comeback will be happening anytime soon.

I'm not a fan of the ads but I still cannot complain about the site.  Greg put up my paper this week and I have already recieved an email from someone who read it, that is very cool.

Coffee ads would be fun.

EDIT: as long as the ads are not pop ups, animated or have audio...I can live with it.
