    Newsletters have way too many popup ads that are very annoying. The emphasis seems to be on revenue to Komando.com hoping the content is good enough for the reader to tolerate the ads.

    I agree jwnewton. Very hard to read with all those pop up ads. Thought this was suppose to be different than FB.

    The Komando Community content here at community.komando.com is all ad-free. This includes the forums, blogs, groups, and other content you can access from within the community portal.

    The newsletters and other content available on the main website for the public is still ad-supported. We are working on implementing some new ad placement strategies as well as designing a whole new public facing website over at komando.com, so feedback such as this is appreciated! We know not every ad you see on our site and in our newsletters will resonate with every reader. We hope you’ll take what interests you and leave the rest. 

    Thank you for being a valuable member of the Komando Community!

    Amber, thank you for your post on newsletters. Since I joined the komando community I thought I could access the newsletters through this portal and was surprised not to find them (but glad to find your post). I love the tech news and other newsletters. Hope they come through the portal soon. I usually listen to kim’s show by radio or from my PC at home. However, Last fall I downloaded the app onto my phone, since I was traveling for work. Suddenly all the pop-ups began to ruin my komando experience. Several times I nearly activated ads, trying to remove them from my tiny phone screen. I’ve tried to keep very little on my phone because of tracking. Komando was one app I was willing to install (along with a Bible app that is important to me). Hope the plans you speak of move forward ASAP.

    I want to reiterate my extreme dislike for the excessive number of popup ads in the newsletters (apparently revenue at the expense of reader satisfaction). I hope you remedy that before I decide to discontinue my membership because of it.

    I agree. Whatever I get in my email box from Kim, there are ads all over the place.

    Hi everyone,

    We hear you on the ads and are working on a solution.

    Would you be willing to pay a few dollars a month for the newsletters without ads?

    It’s all economics that we have to pay for servers, software, writers, copy editors, designers, internet lines, etc. to deliver the newsletters.
