We are still in the infancy of the new site layout and I'm going to be experimenting with some different advertising approachs. Ultimately I'd like to offer an ad-free option for those that want it... for some annual fee that isn't too expensive. In the meantime, I am going to be playing with different placements and testing to see how they are responding. One thing I just introduced today, which I am pretty sure I'll explore more is adding additional ads for non-registered guests. So, if you notice a few more ads thorughout the threads, then you can get rid of them by registering and logging in. As usual, let me know if they are disrupting anything.
