Default Off Topic Advertising

Is there a possibility of eliminating the off topic advertising? I'd even consider paying a nominal fee to get rid of it. I'm thinking of the get rich ads or the come-on ads that redirect to something totally different than the original ad.

I find the ads pretty non-intrusive, I guess if they help support the forum, it is fine by me.

P.S. Not trying to argue, just another opinion. :-)

I use the Safari browser on a Mac and I don't see ads. I'm not sure why, it may be because I have Block Pop-up Windows set on my browser.

A few days ago I saw a couple of ads, but not since, none today.

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
