You guy's need to lighten up and click on the ad.

The ad is for brain food, DHA Omega-3 made into a delicious little snack. Now you can feed your brain while enjoying a high fat, high calorie, high fructose candy bar.

Just look at the amazing results this customer achieved:

"Em goin to et brane bar now. Canno get rapper offe. Bangin on flor no opin. Try terring. Terring good. Now etting brane bar. Is good. Don't noe about the brain stuff but it's actually quite tastee.

More bites. Now it's gone. Delicious. Can't tell if I'm any more intelligent but they make quite a superb snack treat. In fact, they're so delectable, dare I say luscious, that I cannot help but consume the entire container.

Again, it's a quandary exactly what effect the DHA omega-3 - contained within the scrumptious nibbles - has upon my person. However, I do know I just constructed a quantum nullifier using the empty wrappers and the cardboard box."

Viking, I have been working on a system to allow upgraded accounts to opt out of ads. The text you saw was not supposed to be seen by members and if you would like a refund on your upgrade let me know. At this time we do not have an opt out option for all ads for upgraded members. We might in the future but it might be an additional charge beyond the regular upgrade.

Regarding the ads, I wish I had a better answer for you. As everyone knows economic times are tough and resources like AIR have been supported for all members to enjoy for free by our advertisers. The ad supported business model of the internet has brought many innovative and useful tools to users and will hopefully be able to weather the current economic down cycle.

Andy, I appreciate the reply.
There have been a great number of complaints about the ad with the waving guy. I know that the site must be supported to some extent by outside advertising. Otherwise it probably wouldn't be near as good as it is, but that ad in particular is very annoying.
I actually used the link in the user cp to initiate my subscription with the expectation that the ads would be gone, and the language is quite clear about not seeing any ads on screen. I expect that everyone has access to that in their user cp as well, so it surprises me that there are not more complaints about the ads from subscribers.
I appreciate the offer of a refund, and respectfully decline it. The value of your site is well worth the cost to me, and I have been very happy with the product over-all. The people, and the information they provide, make this an entertaining and resourceful forum and I really enjoy it. The only issue I've had at all is that I cannot get what I was offered by the site as a supporting member in the way of eliminating the ads. If this actually becomes available in the future I will be glad to get rid of them. Until then, I will either put up with them, or use a work-around like others have.
Thank you for addressing this directly.

Don't get mad, get even. Email your protests to those with offensive ads. Better yet, look up their CEO's on Google and send a personal thank you. File a lawsuit claiming the guy with the moving hands gives you seizures. If you persevere, vengeance is at your fingertips.
