Not sure if I'm allowed to encourage this, but AdBlock Plus is a good ad-blocker that can be downloaded for free.

I don't know this from experience but a friend of mine was talking about ad blockers, he went on to say that some websites would not let him in while he was running it. I guess some websites depend on the sponsorship so it is a pill you have to swallow sometimes.

That's true. When I get a message saying I can't view the content unless I unblock the ads on that site, I make a decision about allowing the ads or no longer viewing the site. It's a one-click thing to allow ads (one time or forever). I don't see any ads on this site, so I guess this one allows ads to be blocked. (Don't tell anyone I pointed that out.)

Ads pay for free sites, just ignore/bypass the ads and be happy that this site is free.

Okay, okay, I've shut off my ad-blocker for this site. :)

Yeah but its made the page unreadable. On this 1 page alone there was 4 adds, after every second comment. Screws up the flow of the comments.

I saw the same thing - and simply scrolled past the ads.

Or to put it better, I "flowed" past the ads.

This conversation is interesting and I find it ironic that this is one of the ads that I see on our site, here is a screen shot of that ad.

Ya, sorry about the ads, but it does help pay for the hosting of the site.

Feel free to use an adblocker. I won't block content for users who are running an adblocker.
