    This has already been explained to you Marc. If ads really bother you that much remove them.

    its not that they bother me Bram, Im simply pointing out something that looks kinda weerd on your site in the bugs,suggestions and feedback section...and i know its been mentioned before but tonight they returned.
    Seems like a waste of on-screen real estate, especially if others are also seeing identical adverts as I am.

    maybe separating the adverts would look better, one at the top of the sidebar and one at the bottom or separated by one of the widgets? I know there would be no less chance of them being the same advert but aesthetically it might look better on the page?

    Ads and aesthetics don't go along unfortunately. As a matter of fact I don't understand why anybody wants to look at these ugly things in the first place. For 2 cents a day they are all gone and are helping us to pay the monthly costs.

    Here is how my clean forum looks, all features enabled, faster loading times etc etc clean look.jpg

    why penalize users adblock ?
    the alternative is to have advertisements or pay a subscription ?

    the answer is in the question i suppose
    dommage !

    You really expect an answer on that?

    But of course its okay for you to penalize our site by blocking ads that pay the bills, right.
