    I understand the need to run ads on the site, but I don't think ads like the one I just saw are appropriate. Here's a screen grab:

    It's most likely a rotating ad through Google AdSense or something. It's not like someone at Capable OK'd it personally.

    The Asian women are gone now and have been replaced by some crazy blonde lady and text about "the president lowered interest rates" or some other such rubbish. Complete lies right in each ad. Hooray.

    I miss the days when there was forum all the way across the screen and not this junk.

    Can't we pay like $5 and get rid of them?

    I am reading this wondering what the heck you are talking about and why I don't get ads. Then I realize - there they are - I just don't notice. Go figure.

    I mostly notice them when the Flash ads screw up somehow, but the recent ones have all this blinking junk and seem to be really low quality stuff you see on scam sites and low-ranked pages. Usually it is relevant stuff like ads for TiVo or AT&T.

    A flash-blocking add in can help as well.

    aren't ads based on what you google for or search for on Amazon?

    You can ban unwanted advertisers from Adsense, guys.

    Well, that wasn't insulting at all.

    But not being an electrical engineer, what do I know?

    Off to go watch my magic box.
