Subject: RE: BS: Advertising Drop-Downs? WTF?
It's a pretty modest ad! From your post I'd imagined something much more intrusive. AFAIR it didn't overlay content so much as reduce the content area. Other forums I use have much much much worse.
If I had to display that ad, and the other ones I've seen, it wouldn't bother me - provided they're static. Not on a display the size of that iPad, anyway - I don't know what it looks like on a phone. And you said you've managed to suppress it with Firefox, so that the answer, isn't it?
(It'd be useful to know if Mudcat gets revenue on a per-click or a per-impression basis. If I knew it was per-impression I might whitelist it.)
