OMG Ads-all over the place!  I don't mind the ads at the top of each page but it gets distracting in between threads and bottom of pages-please quit with all the advertising PBS!  ** Sobbing hysterically **

Yuck, I don't like it either. This is going to seriously hamper my forum time I think. Awful!

I don't like them either. Personally, I'd pay a membership fee if it meant I could avoid the ads. :P

Ads are fine, except between posts.  I understand that this is a free website, therefore they have to pay for it somehow, but they promised the ads would be unobtrusive.  Couldn't you please move the ads between posts someplace else?

These are hardly unobtrusive! LOL. I would pay for a membership if I didn't have to see all these ads either, but not everyone feels that way. It's just too much IMO. One or two at the top of a page here and there would be tolerable, but this is just tacky.

I don't find them a bother.   I just zip right past them, no different that zipping past the posts I've already read.

Actually, now that I get used to them a little more, I don't mind.  They are just as distracting as all the images in people's sigs, and I don't mind those.

Don't love 'em - don't hate 'em.  I figure I'll get used to ignoring them soon enough!  :-)

There is a thread over in CMT with the same topic Link    As with everything, we will get used to it.  R&R told us where would be ads so lets wait and see how it all washes out.  Maybe they will realize the ads in the middle of the threads isn't a wise idea.  Robert, are you lurking?

I agree they certainly are no more distracting than all the blinkies in our signatures.   We don't choose which ads will be on here, but we also don't choose the blinkies others use.    No biggie, in my opinion.

What do you mean Robert is gone?  I was on vacation and really haven't been on here in a few weeks.  Gone, gone, or on a holiday gone?

Christy, I, too was reading these posts and wondering "What ads?"   I am a Firefox user, also, so thanks for putting that information in  this thread so I no longer think I am crazy!

Well, I'm using Internet Explorer and I'm not seeing any ads - except in one place:  at the bottom of each of my three TBR pages.  But no where else that I can find.

I was also going to say what ads because I don't see any. I have signature pictures turned off.  I hate all those annoying blinkies people use. But I'm not seeing and PBS added ads either.

I like the ads.

There was one for chocolate at the bottom of my TBR page.

I don't see them any where else though.

ok, yes I did find a chocolate ad at the bottom of my TBR list...Tammy, you can have my chocolate ad I'll take your florist...I'm allergic to chocolate.  At the bottom of the pages isn't all the annoying..
