Suggestion for dealing with ads

Post by kukla » Mon May 04, 2009 12:20 am


Why not consider what Mike Bombich has done on Carbon Copy Cloner. He started displaying banner ads when the app is running because he needs the revenue to keep up the site. Quite understandable. But if you click on "I paid" when asked to consider donating, that disables the ads. It's on the honor system, since you don't actually have to have donated in order to click "I paid." You could ask him directly how it's working out, but I haven't heard any more fuss about it since it started well over a year ago.

Thank you for the suggestion, I am sure after Giorgio gets some sleep and has a chance to catch up, he will comment on this and consider your suggestion.
