    I can think of one really cheap solution. Stop watching commercial TV. The content is paid for by the ads. Nothing is free.

    I believe Cyrus was referring to ads on PF.

    Yeah, I've seen the up-close teeth/braces ad too on another site where I can't control whether or not I see ads. A handful of ads seem to be everywhere these days. I'm glad I can control them here.

    I pay 4c per day for the privilege of not seeing ads and keeping our fearless leader Greg out of trouble.

    How come?! I never paid a penny, and I don't get these ads, not even for once :confused:

    Its amazing how the adds follow the threads. If I am in PF main, the ads are about physics tutoring. If I am in the aerospace forum, the ads are about airplanes. When I was in the cats vs dog thread, there was an Ad for cats!

    Cough up a few bucks, Cy! For the price of one drink in your airport-theme bar, you can be ad free for a year.
