When you have to refresh a page 3 times just to be able to read part of the thread, that's a little over doing it, I agree.

What ads? I see zero ads on this page, or anywhere on ecoustics.

If you're running firefox, get the adBlock plus extension. It rocks.

This is what my page looks like with it running: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v346/illuminator321/noads.jpg?t=1275008485

This is a public forum paid for by ads that annoy the #$!# out of everyone. It's also a fact of life. You can choose to switch browsers but eventually E will find a way to still infiltrate your computer with BS you don't want. It's the nature of the beast. It's what pays the bills.


It won't go away. Either accept it it or move along. That's the message we've always got in the past.



Um....sorry.

Yup. What pays $$ takes priority. Someone somewhere is actively thinking up an ad campaign involving the moon and a message visible from Earth.


Sad really.

This website makes around $5500 a month from ad revenue and click throughs etc. which is dick for a site with this many page views and sites linking in. Numbers are also down across the board so they are just scrambling to see what particular ad types get the most clicks.

I agree, the auto expanding ads that overlay content are a nuisance. I've set them to appear less often and contacted the advertising agency to change them.

seriously. 4chan makes about twice that much per month on ads if I recall, and moot barely breaks even on bandwidth costs with that money. Sites aren't cheap to run.
