Re: A Few Thoughts on Lockpicking Forums

Perhaps Clearstar needs to doublecheck their website. I found both the $75 and $55 membership fees listed, depending on which page of their website you looked.

I saw three advertisements on their main page.
There were also a number of animated gifs but they pointed to other parts of the Clearstar website.
I guess their webpage designer just likes animated gifs.

If you're a member, perhaps you could send them a politely worded email about how the flashing gifs affect your eyesight.
If you're not a member and don't plan on becoming one, I fail to see how any of this is a problem.

Re: A Few Thoughts on Lockpicking Forums

I count at least 5 animated GIFs also. The page also refreshes itself every 20 seconds:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="20">

and every refresh changes the central advertising banner. The auto-refresh also disrupts viewing by creating a "flicker" (and scroll if you are at the bottom of the page). It is indeed a gaudy website with a misguided aesthetic panache that is normally confined to disreputable online vendors of ED treatments and stolen credit card records.
