This raises (re-raises) an issue that we've been discussing internally for a while now: CPOL v.Next.
The CPOL is designed specifically to protect authors while allowing as wide a usage as possible. It has IP and patent clauses, distinctions between your code and your article, and specifically states jurisdiction. It's the fully packed, ticked-all-the-boxes license.
However, it has clauses (eg 3c) that simply don't suit some people so we're looking to provide an updated, more relaxed, less high-string version. Use the CPOL now and then update to the new license if you wish in the future.
I must say, I like the CPOL, and... altough it is very well explained, some points are still a bit obscure/difficult for a not english native as me.
Would it be feasible to add a "side note for dummies" with a brief plain-english explanation of the difficult points of the licenses?
I think many users would appreciate that and probably have less problems to choose the one that fits best their desires.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you

For a while I have been getting off-topic ads every once in a while, but it seems like it just got a lot worse. I have been reporting them when I can (not on my phone because it is just about impossible to do without clicking on the ad), but does that actually do anything?

Yuriy and Julie go through reports every day and nuke the ones that we feel deserve the bad rap. We're also constantly looking at new ad providers to try and keep ads on-topic.
It's an incredibly frustrating problem because while we can find advertisers and ad providers that have great ads, they often have an opt-out instead of opt-in setup, with limits, meaning we can only opt-out of a certain number of ad categories. A further complication is that some providers play a little fast and loose with how they categorise ads. "Finance" could mean "We buy your GOLD!" ads.
To add to Chris's point, it's an ongoing battle to remove bad ads, as we remove a bad ad there is another one waiting around the corner to take its place. With that said reporting the ads really helps us keep the bad ones out.
Turns out there is a link on the page you linked to that reads, "Suggest a survey." It ends up taking you to an email form. I have used it several times and have never had any feedback so I can't verify it actually does "suggest a survey." Then again, my ideas for a survey could have just been too boring for CP.

Nah - it was carefully selected for a near-as-dammit straight paper path so I could get heavy paper through it. This one works very well with 260gsm photo card. but poorly with anything under 90gsm (my minimum letter paper)
It's ability to print on perforated rolls was not considered important at the time of purchase!

I am facing an email confirmation dilemma on my account, and hope that a sysadmin could kindly assist with the matter.
There is a red notification on my CodeProject dashboard when I log in, saying "Your email address needs to be confirmed." (because I updated my email address under "My Settings").
When clicking on the notification, the "My Notifications" page is displayed, but the page is empty, there is no hyperlink on the page with which to perform the confirmation.
I did not receive a confirmation email in my inbox either, with which to perform the confirmation.
It appears that my account is in some sort of error state, thus leaving it in a condition where the Login email address needs to be confirmed, but the notification mechanism to do so, is not fully operational.
