    I logged out, then back in again to see if they would go away.

    They are still there.

    That's cool, making money and all that. The more time we click on the ads, the more money USMB (owners) make!

    Click away!

    We'll get used to it, right?

    if i walk away from the computer for awhile and then click to change forums or whatever here, if i've been gone long enough, it defaults back to what you see when you're not logged in (ads). i'm looged in now and i'm not seeing any ads.

    hope it helps.
