Default ads slow down forum

Just a small complaint..
those flash and pricegrabber ads really slow down the website a lot.. makes life difficult for ppl with not so fast internet connections.. i am not asking you to completely remove all the ads.. see if you can do something about it.

Gah. I'm trying to view all these ads and this forum keeps popping up and slowing it down.

www.forumblocker.com FTW!

Yeah I use the AdBlock extension for firefox on most of the ads here. They were really causing problems for me a while back.

Now you're going to make MY head explode.

If the ads keep the site around, I don't mind seeing them.

I'm not sure about the ads on this site, but I thought some ad models didn't require click throughs for the site to get paid.

I hope not, or I've been clicking these for no reason... just to do my part.

Even if we don't have to click the ads, at least your trigger finger will be in shape

I believe we need Adobe Flash 9 for these ads... These are very up-to-date ads.
