I understand the need for a free site to generate ad revenue, I do. I always have the "live.php" firehose page open - always - so that I can check new
threads by simply switching tabs. The problem I have with it is that some of the ads have audio in them, which is UBER-annoying.
I can get used to having one ad on the firehose page, IF the ads shown are silent; otherwise, when I'm watching a video on another tab and a
Massengill commercial comes on in the background... Well, I'm always Summery Fresh, and I don't want to hear it. Until the audio ads are replaced by
ads with no audio, I'm going to have to avoid that page.
If I might make a suggestion? Place a banner ad (a silent one) similar to the one in my signature at the bottom of the page. It will still be just as
visible as the ugly square ad in the middle of the threads, and the annoyance factor will be kept to a bare minimum. I don't think folks would
complain about that too much.
