    All,

    Pursuant to This Thread and many PMs and hard thought, it has been determined to close the Current Events Forum. While this may upset some members, I hope that you'll all understand that I don't want us to lose focus of what ABW is about --- and that is Affiliate Marketing!

    Now let's make some more money!

    Yep, thanks! I'm sure there are plenty of forums where those who want to can hash it out over politics.

    I know I will get more work done, without being "tempted." Thank you, I know I will benefit from its closing.

    So, the main problem seems that it was just too interesting....People were following that instead of making pages....tempted....addicted...getting sucked in, as it were. LOL

    Well, that sort of takes the cake.

    Maybe you SHOULD make , www.abestpolitics.com or, www.abestnewsdiscussion.com Just have a link to it like you do chat.

    For me, it's not that I find the politics interesting, I'm drawn to the fights, lol!

    Personally, I can't see why Haiko would have any interest in creating a website just for those who want to duke it out over current events. He said himself he rarely read the CE forum. People around here should be savvy enough to search for their own forum to play fisticuffs at.

    When I click on the ABW icon on the desktop, it takes me to an ABW search page, returning the latest stuff by date. So whenever someone posts on any of the threads - there they are. I think that's what bothered some who are here to do business or learn something not politically related (or related to George W. Bush).

    The current events formum was distracting (detracting) from other posts.
