I suppose this is a formal complaint against the intro ad recently introduced (tonight if I’m not mistaken). I don't know about anyone else, but something so obtrusive almost turns me away from the site altogether. I expect that kind of thing on gamespy or gamespot, or one of the other whore game-ish sites, but not a this site. Quite along time ago, I came to box network looking for warez information and security tips, and whereas I no longer indulge in the warez information, my thirst for tech/game/security information has risen exponentially. I love this site and hate seeing it get loaded to the gills with ads.
I completely understand that money has to come from somewhere, and ads are pretty much the only way to get there, but this seems like a very steep turn for the worse, and in the wrong direction. This is backlash material. It's probably a good thing the sponsors of that intro page have no idea that most of the patrons of this site will never follow those links. The kinds of ads I'd respond to involve the stuff that this site is all about: new technology and computer parts. Casinos and mortgages have got to go.

An idea... a paypal donation link should be set up for those people that wish to avoid all the ads and strictly want the content like a crack fiend.

Please take this post in the most positive sense... I'm not trying to attack anybody. I just think that if we have to deal with ads, have them at least be ads relevant to the material, and have them be not so obtrusive. I almost thought the site went down when i first came across that main ad page... and it displays every time I come here.
