    Only post something you want seen in 2nd and subsequent posts. That's easy enough.

    How about the second post in the second page?

    Lets be honest, how many of us even look at the adds?
    They are a minor irritation at most, I don't even register them most of the time. In order to boycott an advertsier I'd have to start paying attention to the adds to find out who it was.....

    I do think they were better placed off to the right instead of taking over what should be the space occupied by the first post, but I'm not going to get upset over it.

    Well, I can't see the ads, and possibly never will. However, I can't see the first post either, so the idea is to make a practice that works for everybody. PCTech's trick of the second post quoting the first also works and doesn't add the ad.

    I can live with it in fact my eyes/brain pretty much filter it out. In any event someone has to pay for the Forums "there is no such thing as a free lunch."

    True. However, if I am compelled to watch ads I will simply leave. Probably why I gave away a near new TV - couldn't stomach the programming competing with the ads.

    At least they don't have sound. The time PF1 had the Christmas reindeer jingle advert is legendary.

    PCs were even reformatted in the effort to stop the PC making this 'weird' noise...
