FTB Now Has an Ad-Free Option


Thanks to Jason Thibeault and his programming acumen, we now have an ad-free option here at FTB. We’ve tried to keep the prices reasonable: $3 for 30 days, $8 for 90 days or $30 for an entire year. You can enjoy your favorite bloggers with no annoying ads in the way. You can sign up here. And if you detect any bugs or encounter any problems, you can report them here.

    As I mentioned in Jason’s thread, I don’t use PayPal. I would happily sign up for a year given another option, since the recent flash-based ads make my ancient computers unhappy.

    What Trebuchet said. If you make a non-Paypal option available I am totally in there.

    Nicely done, Jason.

    But, but, but, … If it wasn’t for the ads, how would I have learned that Mormons believe in Christ (seen just above the previous post titled Soldiers are going to kill Christians!)

    Yeah, and where would we be without all those hot women in the “Shocking New Video!!!” ads? If we block those ads, we’ll never be able to guess what they were actually advertizing!

    And what about the cheezy ugly low-budget graphics in the cut-rate-insurance ads? And the photos of ugly old homeless guys in those ads for…um…what were those ads for again?

    THIS IS CLASS WARFARE WHY DO YOU HATE JOB CREATORS SO MUCH??!!!

    I would suggest (and request) adding the option for these to be a recurring-until-cancelled subscription. And, stealing another page from Fark’s book, you might think about how gift subscriptions could be handled. Because I’d just love to give one to Ken Ham.

    I’m OK with Paypal, myself. You might consider a check-through-the-mail option, perhaps limited to a $36 annual subscription (no more expensive than month-by-month, but thus covering the hassle of manual processing).

    Install another web browser that you don’t login on, and occasionally browse with that to admire the ad selections. I install Firefox, Opera, Chrome, and Safari on all Windows and Mac computers; Macs also get OmniWeb put on, while Windows also has Idiot Exploder by default. (My iPhone gets Safari, Chrome, Opera, and Dolphin.) It’s helpful to have options, for when something doesn’t work right with whatever your primary preferred browser might be.

    Aahhhhhhh…….It’s like flicking the switch on my BOSE noise cancelling headphones.
    All the unwanted noise goes away.
    Nice job.

    Jason is looking into other payment options other than Paypal. Don’t know how quickly that can be developed, but we’d definitely like to expand the options.

    Nice one, been waiting for this so already done and dusted for a year and cheap at the price, especially when all the excellent content is considered. Also, don’t know if it is purely psychological, but pages appear to be loading a tad quicker.
