Change & technical advancement will always cause some disruption in society, but how that is dealt with is up to us & the people we choose to be our leaders. If they & we accept the future & prepare for it, we will do well. If we fight it, we won't prosper.
There was outrage & concern that unemployment would take over &/or prosperity would end when slavery was abolished, when children were prevented from working in mines, when weaving machines were introduced to England (the birth of the Luddites movement), when mechanical harvesting came to farms, when robotics was brought into automobile factories etc etc etc. Yet, the doomsday predictors were proven wrong time & time again. Instead of society falling apart, life got better, especially for those on the lower rungs of society. Instead of working in the fields, children had free time to go to school. Adults had leisure time, instead of working from dawn until dusk for a pittance every day. People could develop, and invent, and discover.
Regarding our bodies & activities, do we really need to lumber around in heavy suits of meat? After all, our bodies are just there to carry our brains around & reproduce. We may be on the evolutionary path to a stage where we won't need our bodies and all of the problems that come with them. After all, who we are is contained in our brains. You could hook a human brain up to a computer that simulates the human body with all of its senses, place it in a virtual reality world with other brains also hooked up, and it would believe that it is a complete person living a complete life. It could converse, make decisions, travel, have a career, even have sex. That could be our future. It could even be where we are right now - how could we know?

If you remove PTC ads people will disappear too, because some people only earn from the ads. The only thing that it seems work is to remove PTC ads but give to members the opportunity to earn from other things like tasks surveys and offers. You also need to introduce new ways of earning if crowdflower keep the level system, it is very rare to appear 0 level tasks and so, members can't level up and can't complete more tasks. What I would like you to do is talk with crowdflower so task authors create more 0 level tasks instead of 1 level.

I voted to keep CS as it is. I liked having PayPal, but check is fine with me. I don't really go much for signing up for more and more online services, and have long ago shut down my Payza account.
I've watched the life of many of the other "Offer" sites, and so few are really good and honest. Many, I wouldn't trust with my sandwich, much less cash or my personal information. I know a few of the owners from years of complaints and shenanigans over their failed sites. And many offer sites wind up being trashed out, sooner or later.
I sincerely hope CS doesn't go down that road. I've been here since 2007, and have weathered through all the changes over the years. Going full Offer site or another route most likely would make me cash out, leave my refs for someone else, and close my account.

The USA is the highest polluter in the world except the oil field countries the USA imports all it's oil from, and Australia.
Blaming poor countries is a feel good myth for rich white countries. It only works at all if you fail to adjust per capita.
