CombatACE New Theme Music

Recommended Posts

+Erik    792

In an exciting announcement CombatACE is proud to introduce our new theme music. More on that in a moment.

 

In a heated debate this morning over stale donuts and wrongful coffee we had a discussion about the ads on our site and ad blocker extensions or plugins. We learned a tremendous amount from our time this morning and our discussion brought in experts and viewpoints for both the pros and cons of ad blocking software. Our focus group enlisted the past experiences from ARS Technica who like us have been online for 12 years or more. This is without a doubt one very interesting and well written editorial comment. I encourage you to take a few moments to read this:

 

BLOCKING ADS AND OUR FUTURE 

 

I'm proud to announce that our decision falls directly in line with ARS Technica. While we could nag, or mention when we know software is being used we have elected not to. We have found no reason to force anyone to do anything because in today's world we know it's about choice. However like ARS Technica we hope you understand why our ads pay the bills and what we face every month to provide our services. Like ARS we are very grateful for everything you all do to help out, and we know our strength is in our community, and that's where we should focus our time. If you have taken the time to whitelist combatace.com in your adblocker or view our ads we want to recognize you as well, thank you.

 

Now as promised, our new theme music.

 

THEME MUSIC

For an thought provoking, ground breaking, event laden, and entertaining website, as this one is; the musical choice is absolutely spot on. I am inspired now to destroy the enemies that are before me, and plunder all the mountain gorillas that now frolic in their lands. THANK YOU!!

By the way, good article about ad blockers. Last thing I'd want is to screw CombatAce in any way.

I was living in San Diego in the 90's and I won a call-in contest for all inclusive AC/DC passes. These boys played their backsides off to a packed house and it was a great memory. After the show we met the band and Angus signed my Gibson and gave me three pics from his pocket that were reduced to nothing. Cased and hanging on the wall in my office is this icon to my younger days. These Scottish lads get my vote if they'll give us a release to use it, I for one would be tickled black.

I also want the site to keep running. And if using ads makes it possible, why not. I've added an exception for combatace.com to my ad blocker in order to show ads.

 

@Theme Music:

I'm outstandingly impressed of your fine taste of music when it comes to find a fitting song for our community :grin:

 

Addendum:

The guy looks a bit like a puppet from a horror movie... awaiting for the right moment to start a bloodbath... :smile:

There's an interesting story behind that Russian singer/songwriter and his conflict with his lyric writer that led to that song.

 

Anyway, while we were watching Hee-Haw and Sonny and Cher and the Mandrell Sisters during the 70s, that's what they saw in Russia.

There's something about watching old porn that disgusts me, it's probably knowing what the old porn stars look like today that kills it for me. It's like watching the super8 your grandma and grandpa had hidden. You just don't want to be that guy. EVER!

We somehow got on the topic of porn and you chime in about "popups"? Wow your timing is exceptional. :lmao:

 

No there are no ad pop-ups, pop-unders, page loads, etc., those are not permitted with AdSense. You will find those with other ad services but since we only use a quality and qualified ad service (not everyone can be an adsense publisher) our ads are very straight forward, no surprises. Although I have seen some rich media ads which expand when you mouse over them, but you can close them quickly or let them play with no hassle or mess. Oh yeah and we don't play any stupid ads that start playing automatically with audio that is obnoxious when trying to read something then you have to find the stupid thing to close it or shut it off. We don't do that either.
