Dear Gang I have been using the web for over 20 years, and I am sick to death of ads. They are the rose in my side for far too long. Additionally we the people are not asked if we want these ads - no permission - no request. Also since I am in Australia, most of these ads are not applicable either. I am not here to financially support a site via ads or any other method of monetisation. If you want me to view ads - you pay me or I block them. E.g. Macrumors.com has over 16 ads alone, and the forums have 7 ads - not acceptable.
