    Ugh ads on the left, what the heck...

    The forum looks like a myspace page now.

    If it helps pay the bills so that you, me & everyone else can continue to enjoy this forum I'm ALL for the ads.

    Is that why there's a large space on the left now?

    Those ads are phenominally obnoxious. I'd much rather they switch to a lighter weight forum software or something.

    That's funny, I haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary. C'mon, operator, you've been a member longer than me, if you're not going to contribute, you should just eat it and smile. Trolls like us don't have much room to complain.

    If you're using the Firefox web browser, I wrote a script that removes the ads. Go here for the script and directions for how to use it.

    Once you install the script, the ads disappear.

    This might be the new definition of cheap. To cheap to donate $25 but more than willing to donate time to write a program to defeat the bike forum ads. If you are that smart surely you can land a job that pays enough to free up 25 bones.

    IMO and based upon the terms of use of other forums... this is typically an offense that results in banning. Sure, it not detectable but spreading the link so others can add into using resources of the servers but not allow ad impressions is simply malicious.

    Yeah - better on the right for those of us with wee little screens - - when they were on the left, part of the forums themselves were out of view, requiring a side-scroll.

    I don't mind these jersey ads at all; in fact, I think they look good
