I don't visit the banners because I don't like the topics. Can you put topics that include news, science, or airlines? Then I would visit the banners on a daily basis. (I don't have much money and I don't like Mr. Forbes or his publication. When I read a business publication, I read Business Week.)
We appreciate your concern. It is noted and stupid.

I have no control over what banners DO appear. I've excluded certain banners because I feel they are not appropriate. If I exclude too many, then non-profit ones get put in... While I actually like them, I don't get paid, and neither does the ad place.

Besides, if you don't click through, you'll miss great stuff like this:
Want To Feel Good? Don't Smell A Child, Sniff Your Granny - July 01, 1999
UK (New Scientist) - The smell from an old lady's armpits can raise your spirits, a scientist in Pennsylvania claims. Her work also suggests that in contrast, the scent of a young child does nothing to improve your mood.

Seriously though, I don't need a car loan, but I can spare a couple minutes to click through and find out why I don't need one.
One banner in the morning, and one in the evening after I get done looking around here!!

Trinculo, you dont' HAVE to like the ads. All you have to do is CLICK them. That's IT. Click them, spend a TINY bit of time there, then hit the back button. We're not asking you to buy, we're only asking you to click.

That's all I do. I click it, and, when the page gets loaded somewhat, I just go back. I don't even look at it.
This has nothing to do w/ whether or not you want to see what's being advertised. All it does is raise necessary funds for the Forums. If everyone only clicked the ads that looked interesting, this place would probably be permanantly shut down within a month. I'm sure you don't want that to happen, do you?

Yes, well, if something catches my eye, I'll look at it. But, as it is, medical and financial sites and such don't interest me much, so I don't bother. Surely, 'tis better to have clicked and ignored, than never to have clicked at all... :-)
