So did I miss something with the advertisements asking questions?

This is a little weird ... why are there companies asking questions?

  • They have always been here. Only before, there wasn't a banner...it just said question sponsored by (company). And their logo was the avatar.

  • How do you think this site can afford to operate?

    There have always been advertisements. They just changed the format a little bit.

  • Obviously, but I have never seen them ask questions before ... maybe I have been in the clouds.

  • The first answer is right. last summer, we had Staples and HP in here and there have been quite a few others. There are just a lot more sections sponsored right now and as mentioned the graphics have gotten better. There are also sponsored sections of The Stir and several groups.
