I don't know about rude, I certainly don't feel like I have been nor have I seen any rude ones. I have recently seen some comments about some members wondering if SP really pays attention to this forum and if they care about some of the problems with the ads.
As to supposedly members leaving, they are. I've been a member of SP since Jan. 2008 and the membership has dropped just about every year from over 220,000 when I first started to at the end of Dec. 2013, 86,345, an all-time low.
There may be a sense of frustration setting in. Since you haven't had to deal with the red screen pop-ups you might not understand.
I don't see this forum as a "complaint" board, but one where we come to ask for help when we're having problems and this red screen pop-up is by far the worst that I have seen.
As I previously mentioned, I feel I should see the ads that help keep SP free and don't mind going into some of them if I find them interesting. AdBlocker defeats a way of keep SP free.
Ads are a reality of internet life and I think everyone pretty much realizes it, but they don't have to be invasive - in-your-face pop-ups or sound ones. Of all the sites that I've visited, SP without a doubt has the most, but then again I haven't been on every site.
I think most members would be accepting of a happy-medium!
BTW, my Norton Security is continually running and scans everyday.
