Is This Supposed to be Like This????

Just noticed this when I clicked on New Posts this morning.

What is the dealio with the giant ads? This is after I made text smaller so you could tell what it was. At normal size the ads take up the entire screen and you have to scroll to even get to the new posts?

Representation where it is deserved...

At least it isn't in the normal sections. They are supporting this site, so for the fellow PWs that frequent 'new posts' its not too much of a demand IMHO.

Never complained about a ad at the top or the side bar but the entire page....that's a bit absurd. Surely this isn't supposed to be like this.

Who wants to take a guess on the ratio of people that this will off to the number of people who are all of a sudden gonna go spend money at sponsors since they see their 3 pages of ads everytime the click new posts.

I personally don't like it, but I like it alot more than having those ads on every single page like some other forms do. Makes it irritating to just look @ a thread

Honestly...one banner ad at the top of each page for a sponsor is cool and understandable. Filling one frequented page of the site with a ton of ads making it look like some site popup with a million ads is ridiculous.
