Default It's probably just me but... the Ford sticky is annoying.

I realize this is just me but I am getting really annoyed by the Ford Motor Company sticky thread. I don't really care about the Ford Motor Company and their products. I am sure they are paying or they better be paying for this advertising. Last time I checked this is a Subaru fan site.

Flame away.

I don't think that's the way it works. I believe it's somewhat automated through a third party in that NASIOC doesn't have exclusive control over what ads are shown.

I'm not sure why you care. It's ads like those that keep this website free. No one is forcing you to click on them.

you're annoyed by VERY minimal advertising on a FREE site?

Given how resourceful this site is, I'm surprised there isn't more ads.

It's to pay all the mods. You guys may not know it, but I have inside information. Some of the moderators on this forum are making crazy money off us 99%ers.

Yeah... Don't click on it. Plus, ford moco (fomoco?) actually has the best line up of good cars they have ever had prolly in the last 13+ (I'd say 20+ years). Plus, they took zero bailout money. Give credit where credit is due. Ford is ok in my book, even if I have no desire to buy any if their cars (except the 302 as a track toy. Through some hennesey at it and it's a BEAST).

To be honest, the new Fusion looks amazing. Every time I see one on the street I keep thinking it's an Aston Martin.
