Keeping a forum up isnt FREE ...
No, it's not. For that reason I'm generally loath to block adverts. In fact: Prior to their effect on the site's usability here, I'd never
done so, ever, for any site. But this site's owners/administrators/whomever seem remarkably adept at finding and using the most God-awful, CPU-pegging, browser-hanging, page-display-slowing, and sometimes down-right obnoxious adverts and advert servers on the 'net. Finally, when it got to "either do something about this or abandon Sailnet," I installed Adblock Plus.
Now I hardly ever see any
adverts here anymore.
I'll note again: Of the (counting...) six, currently, sites I visit regularly, and the three or four I visit occasionally, and the additional half dozen or so I visit even more occasionally: Only on Sailnet, only
on Sailnet, have I ever
experienced such problems and have I ever seen such wide-spread complaints on such a frequent basis.
