I posted this on the main thread but if your on google chrome goto the App Store and add Adblock it will stop the adds. I think its available for every browser and some browsers already have adblockers built in.
Awesome. I haven't been here in a while; just came back and saw John's thread from the front page. Clicked it, started reading it, then the Home Depot ad came at me and emphasized his point for me.
Wouldn't it be great if a website like this, where all of the advertising profit happens because of the content provided by its users, did profit sharing? I wouldn't qualify, because I don't post a lot of content, but John and others would see a nice little paycheck once a month.
Then John would quit griping about the ads! Win-win.
I never minded the ads on here so the owner/owners could make a buck other than the Service Magic ads. It did not seem right to allow a company that leachs off contractors to be allowed on a contractor site.
I guess it is like broadcast, and virtually all television except for premium channels. Someone has to pay, and I already pay for DISH, I do not want to pay for a forum. I own one now, and it would make for slim eating.
