    come on Bgizzle, what were you thinking? this site was so clean and neat, and now you have ads? if they are generating revenue, thats great, but who actually clicks on theses ads? i didnt even notice them until I got on my one cmputer without adblock.

    its too easy to miss the ads to make any money, and they sortof clutter up the place. area ads going to help?

    enough people click on them to pay for the server bills. this is a free site and will always remain that way, but someone has to foot the bill. i think it is best for the entities that are directly profiting from the existence of sites like this to pay these bills.

    They really aren't disruptive at all. And I'm okay with them.

    well, it makes the page take a little longer on the iPod, but thats about it. as long as they dont say "congratulations, you win a free iPod nano" im all good

    that would be a great idea! take enough money to pay for the site, donate some to support the exploits! good thinking.
