I noticed that I'm just now getting banner ads between the first post and the next post on the list on any particular forum, and within a thread. Not a problem to me, and I hope it helps to support the site.

It's annoying to see those ad banners in the forum area and in between threads.

Just got them to,right in the middle of everything! One thing I liked most about this place was that it was relatively ad free, well at least not plastered all over everything.

I am very annoyed by these stupid ad banners on here. Facebook is almost ad free. Photobucket is the same way almost with ad banners all over the ding dang place. I started surfing on here about 30 minutes ago and ad's in ever area and in in each thread! very annoying........ 

 

Does the site owners know these video ad banners carries virus's? yes they do, that's why Photobucket is virus's here and there and people always getting virus's on some sites that has certain ad's being ran. I know Gregg and Harry just got this new forum up and going but I think the ad banners is a big mistake though.

I'm a paid member over in MacRumors for the purpose of avoiding these. What's the charge?

AdBlock Plus for Firefox blocks the annoying ads.   (it also works w/ Sea Monkey which I use w/ a proxy to get around annoying corporate firewalls).

AdBlock Plus for Firefox blocks the annoying ads.

By far the best plugin app for FireFox ;)

Just started today for me also.  I wouldn't mind if the mods could guarantee the safety, but I'm guessing that's not possible.

I think we still get a free ride, and it will stay that way thanks to the ads. Most TV shows work that way unless you're paying for premium cable channels. How much of an inconvenience is this, really? Maybe a couple of extra seconds for loading time.
