Joe,I get all that Qui I don't need it spoon feeding from you. I am merely stating my opinion that I don't like the ads.
I am happy to pay and I bet a lot of others would be too. That was my point. Why don't we have a poll pay vs ads?
We are definitely looking into potential solutions where non-paid advertising could be eliminated via a subscription system (basically a "donation" in an orderly fashion) but it is just one of several options we are looking into.
BTW, just for the record, I don't like ads either and don't know anyone who does, but as Qui pointed out, they are a great solution to keeping a free site free!
