In case you missed the discussion elsewhere, there is a free and easy way to clear your screen of the ads that have popped up in our forum.  We could pay the forum hosts $75 to avoid them, but instead, you can download a free piece of software that blocks them (from lots of different sites in addition to this one).  It's called Adblock Plus and is available for PC and Mac and several types of browsers.  You can get it at http://adblockplus.org/en/.  Several of us have used it and are loving it!

Agree $75 is too much to pay to eliminate ads, especially if there are alternaties.

Adblock Plus does not work with Safari, only Firefox.

Anyone know of a good, free ad-blocker that works with Safari, let me know.

Otherwise, I notice if I log on, the ads are only at the top of the page, not embedded in each and every darned post.

It also works with Google Chrome. I switched from Safari a few months ago, I don't remember why, but have been pretty happy with it. I never really liked Firefox for some reason. I was looking for the shrugging shoulders one and couldn't resist this emoticon. WTH?????

I've been waiting for a chance to use this one, too:
boring
