A click a day, keeps the bad-ads away

I cant stand intrusive ads; passive banner ads are ok. These scrolly things are somewhat annoying, but not as bad as the adverts presented last month. Like spam and cold calling, I simply refuse to shop places that use this tactic.

However, on a site like sailnet where the ads can be very well targeted, the ads can even add value to the readers while giving our hosts a higher return. If we frequent some of the advertisers, perhaps our host wont be as pressured to further support their business model...
