We were actually trying to generate revenue without adding more buttons and banners and things that have seemingly become too much. I swear to you we are just testing this out and if it is truly a nuisance or truly is that much of a problem - we will scrap it.
Sean -- I don't mind. It reminded me to buy cat food today cuz my cat's were hungry.

Same here. I added script blocker too. I run the scripts that I want to run. I seen that LS had a new script that the software caught I didn't investigate.

Man I love Firefox.

i have noticed that at any given time there are far more guests on than members. why not keep the ads for guests and spare those of us who contribute to the content on lawnsite? and yes, they are very distracting.

I think these things are the most irritating thing I've seen yet on a website. Hope you get rid of them soon!
