Banner ads

Anyone else have the two banner ads on both sides sides of the forum? Driving me crazy.

This is ridiculous. I have ad blocker on my PC but just logged on using my laptop. Is it really necessary to have a HD ad on both sides of the page. Really putting a squeeze on this guys ability to read the written word.

I didn't even know the ads exist -- used FireFox with AdBlockPlus since I don't know when. I'm not looking to start a religious war, but if you don't like ads, it might be time to try a different browser.

I think all browsers have an add blocker. Different name maybe, but same effect.

Sorry but anything Microsoft is known to have holes especially internet explorer. I'm running windows 7 but first thing I did was get Firefox.

I see ads occasionally when on my iPad or iPhone which uses Safari but not my laptop.

As for what ads you might see. They work by your browsing history and or search history. So if your seeing ads for HD or Viagra its what you are someone on that system has searched or looked at.
