    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    Tough one to decipher... I'm guessing you don't like the additional spacing created by the Facebook "Like" application?

    Oh gee, let me be the first. Wow I'm the first. Oh gee, you like what I write.

    Who the frig cares?

    Creates a huge void at the start of comment, more than doubles the space of a post and makes you scroll to see the initial post.

    I don't disagree that the button takes up too much space. I am looking into removing a portion of it but haven't figured out how yet.

    Going forward we are going to go back to the original system where I post when a change will be made before it happens so you can understand where we're coming from and how it will effect you.

    why do you insist on forcing the reader to scroll to find the first post of a topic?

    you may be technically superior but your web design skills are horrible.

    you continually ignore the first rule of social community web design

    who gives a hoots ass about what is being advertised on eBay?

    - What page(s) do you have to scroll to read the first post?

    - What led you to the conclusion that I'm a web designer? I haven't done web design in 10 years. Adding advertisements to a built in Ad location isn't web design. If you don't like the design, I can put you in touch with the designers.

    - If I had known of this elusive first rule of social community web design I would have learned it, I swear..

    - Nobody. I suggest all of our competitors stay far away from eBay ads.


    Seriously now..
    can you post a screen shot of what you're seeing? I have tested the design a lot and there are very few issues with where the ads are placed. Some situations, like we discussed before, can cause it to take up additional space. If you can send me a screen capture of what you see on various threads I can help you or make adjustments to the layout to fix it if necessary.

    As you have seen, even though you get a little snarky, many of your suggestions have been used to some degree.
