I agree. I understand the need for advertising and don't really mind when it's actually related to the topic. I occasionally pop in and read reports without signing in and am always surprised by the ads at the bottom. I can't imagine that looks good to a new visitor to the forum.

Do those click-baity style adds even work? I doubt many people looking at this forum care about "Ways to beat a Canadian traffic ticket" or "That one fruit that is slowly accumulating in your body and killing you that you'd never believe"... I would have guessed a few well placed backcountry.com or MEC ads would be infinitely more successful?
