Well, considering that it is against the rules to use Adblock, it makes sense that the advertisement shouldn't take up the middle, (and one of the)
most active areas of ATS.
However I can understand if the administrators need cash, and this is their only way at this moment in time to do so.
But because there hasn't been an announcement at all, leaves me to believe this is a mistake.
So I hope that Skeptic is at least benefiting from this.
I will take off Adblock in order to keep my account here at ATS. And I will take a step back and realize that "momentary sacrifices" must be made if
this is the case.
However, as the above poster has said, and even mapped out - Wouldn't it make more sense to make two slightly lesser annoying ads, and put them both
on the sides of the page - rather than smack dab right in the middle?
It just seems like a big error. And it's odd that not one representative/mod/admin hasn't at least briefly given us a reason why.
I've got the website's New Topics page as my homepage, and I'm sure I'm not the only one.
Would like some closure on this guys.
