Hi everyone,

I am the creator of LibreOfficeForum.org. I'd just like to set a few
things straight.

2. Ads. Yes, we have them. They are only Adsense text ads, I do not and
will never permit image ads or 3rd party sponsor ads. I think this is a
responsible and simple method of keeping the forum running if it gets hit
with more traffic. Good hosting is not cheap. I realize that some users
hate ads with a passion. Most of those users are already running an ad
blocker, so they will never see the ads anyway. And additionally, any
registered user can disable the ads with two checkboxes in his user
preferences.


You probably use a dedicated host from
http://www.softlayer.com/dedicated/(at least $119 per month)
because
$ host www.libreofficeforum.org
libreofficeforum.org has address 174.121.218.38

and
$ host 174.121.218.38
38.218.121.174.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer
26.da.79ae.static.theplanet.com.

and finally www.theplanet.com leads to www.softlayer.com.

The same IP address that has libreofficeforum.org (174.121.218.38) hosts
about 430 websites.
See
http://whois.domaintools.com/174.121.218.38

Examples of websites are
http://www.1dayacuvuemoistreviews.com/
http://www.1luv2ya.com/

I think the issue is that for a free and open-source project, it's easy to
get fast Internet access and a good server, donated by some University or a
company. A group of volunteers can maintain it in the beginning. Therefore,
there is no need to go into issues such as paying from your own money for a
server and supplementing it with ads.
