    About 12 hours ago, I went over 1000 status points. When MP first started, this would have given me Gold Status but while that ended, the benefit of seeing it ad-free remained.

    That is, it remained for everyone except me. I am still seeing the ads.

    I am considering taking drastic action. With the background music of "Pizzaman, Cholula, and Gargoyle" (oops, I mean "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly") playing, I may ride into the dusty Western town of Colorado Springs, and call out Randy to meet me at high noon at the OK Corral.

    I can picture it now: We will be facing each other, hands hovering near our holsters, while men tremble in fear of losing Milepoint and women scream in fear of losing me. The town drunk will stumble out of the saloon demanding to know who has a financial interest in the shoot out.

    The marshal will also come out of that saloon, burping his way towards us, "Earp! Earp!" Even a slight wound will be dangerous as the sign on the Doc's office reads "Holiday".

    Need this tragedy take place? Or, at the last minute, will Sheriff Mikel find my ad-free status and present it to me, thus avoiding bloodshed?

    Don't miss the next episode of this exciting Western classic!

    Whomever has hijacked Dovster's ID, I ask that you retrun it to him.
    He would never ask to be ad-free with so many dating sites being displayed.

    So the Al Goreithm finally shifted, just in time to shift the Dovster. Finally!

    I have a funny feeling this also means the end of original member status being granted.

    Oddly enough, I reached the 1000 status points several hours before MP shut down for maintenance, so I am not certain that the new Al Goreithm is responsible.

    Perhaps it was the old Al Goreithm; the UIG cued him in to the fact that you didn't vote for him.

    Perhaps y'all should consider a "status-action" action?!

    Quick Dovster, put your ad in for your own DOM dating service, before Al Gore and the Ithms catch up with you.

    until now 1000 gave you ad free, prompting me to wonder if other "mystery" gold/plat benefits were being activated even though gold/plat were no longer being given.

    OTOH for example, it seems it took an admin/etc to give me the 1 month bonus. i got it right after i posted about not having gotten it on my 32nd day.

    now im really glad i didnt spam to get 1000, and end up missing it. =D

    Dovster needs the dating ads and the body part enhancement ones too, so I am quite certain that Sabore has it right (he's my General, I support him unquestioningly)The problem for other people i do not understand . I have no ads, but I really did not notice them much when I did have them.

    What I want to know is: Where Is The Gold? If Dovster will help fight that one, I'll help him get free of the ads he does not want.:)

    The gold is inside your heart. Keep giving, and more gold will appear. :)

    Obviously it's time for MP to have more of a police presence.

    He can't stand the dating ads. It is a living reminder of the sites that have blocked him.

    I find it amusing that milepoint.com members are complaining about advertisements when — ironically — there are many signatures that look like billboards for airlines, hotels, credit cards and rental car companies...

    ...and, by the way, the advertisements do not bother me in the least. In fact, as I scroll down through a discussion, I know by the appearance of an advertisement that I am approximately halfway or so through that “page” of the discussion.

    I say book the Dovster and lock that varmint in the hoosegow permanently, Sheriff Mikel...

    Maybe if you print out a copy of your points page screenshot along with a copy of all your posts (akin to boarding passes) and send it to Randy, you can claim the missing points.

    I don't know Canarsie. Your icon sort of looks you are behind bars or maybe in a smoke-filled room. I'm gettin suspicious of the both of you. :D

    I disagree.

    My avatar looks like I am trapped inside an individual DOTS candy:
