I only ask because I have certain advertiser's cookies blocked because they are known to, or have in the past, collected "personally identifiable information" which I personally refuse to subscribe to.

I see many other sources of income other then the advertisements blocked by ad-blockers. Of course the Ad-blockers may infringe on your maximum profit potential however insisting on users to disable their ad-blockers for you will most likely not result in the outcome your looking for.
The terms and conditions already ask much of members in terms of compliance. What you ask us to do now takes to a higher level many are uncomfortable with. Their is a better approach.

Well I try for Disclosure whenever possible.
I guess its just another conspiracy.
In all seriousness, the ads here are not bad at all. Thanks for the service you provide, gentlemen.

The only problem I have with it is that you guys (ATS owners) don't have any control over the content of the ads being displayed. I can't tell you how many times I've come here only to get a pop-up window that tells me my PC is infected and I should download some fraudulent anti-virus software to correct the problem. I'm forced to protect my PC and my data from those inscrupulous adverts.
\While I understand that you guys are trying to make some money here, I have to protect my own interests as well....
This topic brings a question to mind:
Since this is a "for profit" forum, are the forum moderators paid or provided some other form of compensation for their efforts?

I block pop ups, very annoying while trying to research. I do however, try to remember to click on ads in sites I like to help them. Remember, click on the ads and even click a tab at the advertisers site to make sure there is proper credit. At least thats how I was told it workded a year or so ago. Click the ads support your forums.
