Thank goodness I finally saw this announcement. I thought my machine had been infected by the adchoices adware and was trying to find it and get rid of it.
Understanding that ads provide a way to keep these forums on-line, okay.
Right now the ads are at top, bottom and right, taking up about 1/3 of my screen. Add one to the left side and I'll be losing 1/2 my screen.
Please keep an eye out for people complaining about losing text. That has happened on a couple other sites I use, with the first 50 lines or so truncating the last 30 characters or so of text, about 1/3 from the right hand margin. If it's really interesting text, I'll do a copy and paste which will pick up the underlying text. Otherwise, pppftt.
If popups appear over the top of postings, then I would have to seriously consider whether to try to read the forums or not. They slow my machine down to the point where I cannot get under the popups at all.
Thanks for listening.
