- You can turn off E-Mail notification by unchecking it from every post or going into the control panel and turning it off by default.

- The floating ad only appears once per session. I'd hardly call it intrusive.

- As far as I can tell, Steve has 6 links in his signature. Three are informational about this site and three more are important announcements.

I think Steve is just a selfish guy and doesnt deserve any of your support
Steve provides a wonderful community for webmasters. Like all of us who make money from our sites, he deserves to generate revenue for his site (probably much more than he makes now considering all the time he has put into it/what he gives). Regarding Steve being selfish, no, certainly not. This forum was established in 1998. Until 2000, there were no ads of any kind on it (well, there was that post card ad that was for one of Steve's sites but that doesn't count). Thus, we can assume that Steve made $0 or a very small amount of money from the site. I highly doubt someone that is selfish would continue to run a site that is generating very little revenues.

I know when I came here, I was so confused about how to make money online. I had only found *one* other site about making money online and that was Mark Welch's site. Finding these forums was spectacular. I've learned a great deal from reading here and a portion of my success can be attributed to this forum giving me such a good start.

Steve just wishes to help people and build a great community. Anything he receives in advertising dollars he deserves.
