    How else would Cody and Kyle would pay and maintain their site? Thought so.
    If you hate it, then how about getting AdBlock Plus for Firefox?

    WE HAD THIS THREAD ABOUT THIS BEFORE!!!

    EDIT: Never mind. Stupid ABNORMAL ads.

    Ad Block doesn't block those embedded ads for me, did you use a filter or something else?

    Click on the AdBlock button. This will show a number of blockable sites. Right-click on the ad's URL and click on "Block This Item."

    Calm down awesome

    Those ads he's talking about aren't normal I'm pretty sure. The ads the Kyle and Cody have up are on the left or right side of the site, never pop up and interupt my sound...or is that just me?

    You can add exceptions to adblock+ . It's especially easy for flash based ads. Simply hover your cursor over the ad and there will be an adblock tab. When you click it you can then add a specific rule or exception for that specific ad or the whole directory that the ad comes from. Also, you can do the old fashioned hosts file mod to get them to block those too, but that is a little more technical. I love the adblock sbsettings toggle, unfortunately it is from an scrupulous source that allows for other things to patch. I don't agree with that.

    I've always said that if they ask that every member above like 30 posts contributes $5 a month to the site that it would have to put at least a dent in server costs.
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix

    Did you see the post of how much it costs to run this site?! The owner posted it in another thread. I think it was the "what annoys me" thread.

    Then we would be perfectly fine, but thats never going to happen.

    a) the site should be free
    b) there are probably only 50 of you members above 31 posts that thinks its a good idea, and that wouldn't make a dent at all.

    See the fit some people make about paying 5$ for an app; and that is a one time fee.

    You can set your browser to no load images. And I also appreciate the ads because this forum get money to pay the server from that.
