    Get rid of the ads? Egads. What do you think enables the owner of this site to live the good life in the Caribbean and Utah? Sure ain't goodwill and donations.

    Of course, AdBlock is free. And works equally well on other sites.

    Joe sold the boards.
    The current owners hang out in El Segundo and Manhattan.

    More screen resolution. The ads only encroach if you don't have enough horizontal pixels. This new software assumes we have more advanced hardware.

    I just downloaded adblocker. It works really well. The pages come up really clean and friendly without clutter. Thanks for the tip!

    It is not about the destination. It is about the journey getting there.
    Competitors work until they get it right, but champions work until they can't get it wrong.

    well maybe it's because this computer is as old as the hill's and the adverts take up most of the page.
    no idea how computers work .

    I just paid the $12 cause I use multiple computers. Much better.
