I admit that most of the advertisements that come in my pm box don't thrill me much. I do keep wishing that something would capture my attention so that I can not only help myself with the product but also help the site through whatever advertising monies come in. This brings me to the latest offering. Steve arranged for us to have a free weekend at www.ReelMagicMagazine.com I can remember when you could buy DVDs of the video magazine and really wished they would have an online site. So after about 24 hours I've been able to catch up on some of the issues and have viewed many of the On Demand Plus items and like what I've seen so far. So not to sound to gushy thank you Steve for this and keep the ads coming. It came across to me like an early Christmas present.

I would rather a few pm ads than paying for a site. Not that big of deal considering the vast amount of information available on this site. You won't find another forum with that much information free or now. Also you don't have to read them and eventually they will be deleted automatically. It is not like you are getting 50 a day or something like that so it is not that bad.
The great trouble with magicians is the fact that they believe when they have bought a certain trick or piece of apparatus, and know the method or procedure, that they are full-fledged mystifiers. -- Harry Houdini

That is because they have not been here long enough to see and appreciate the vast amount of information. All they focus on is ads not the huge amount of free information available. The longer you have been here the less you care about a few pm ads. I would rather those than those awful pop-up ones or YouTube video ads. At least on here you can choose to look at them or not, and they are at least magic related.

I've asked to be taken off the SPAM list, but that hasn't stopped the wash of adds directed at me in PMs.


This comes across to me like you don't want to receive the messages, and therefore were complaining about them.

As others have said, the site is a free resource and one of the best places on the Internet for magicians. I have made friends, received a ton of advice and even met the person that sponsored my Magic Castle membership on this site. All of that has cost me nothing, and the rewards have been numerous.

If you don't like the ads, ignore them.
