    1) They allow me to use my laptop as I see fit as long as its not x rated or otherwise reflects poorly on them
    2) At the same time I don't have admin rights to install any software.

    I don't mind the ads in sidebars and banners, sometimes I even use them. It was the ads that were breaking up people's posts (between paragraphs) that were super distracting.

    Those ads should be gone now. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    We do that. It's one of the benefits of being a Suppporting member.

    I knew I didn’t get ads for a reason...

    But I saw some red supporter badge folks complaining as well, so I second guessed myself.

    Dammit.

    @Wookie

    It's an option for Supporting members that they control, IIRC ads are still on by default when they become supporting,

    This was a different problem, If you weren't running AdBlock you would have seen them also afaik.

    Thanks to the mod staff for addressing the issue. I'm not seeing the excessive ads now.

    That’s definitely a Pete thing. All we can do is comment as users.
