    I kind of fall into a couple of those categories. They do catch my attention and I look at them, but I rarely (almost never) click on them.

    #1 and #3 is kinda related and so is #2 and #4. You should open it up for a multiple selection instead of one choice

    I have been using Adblocker in my Chrome browser since long before I found this site and have never even seen an ad here. I actually forgot that forums use them! LOL

    Wow a mod who can't even support the site by allowing the display of ads?! That's complete disrespect. If it was my site you would be gone for admitting that.

    I used to not use an ad blocker here as I wanted to do my part to help support the site. But as some of the ads here got more and more obtrusive, (the 20-30 second battery pop-ups with no option to close were particularly galling) I had to change my thinking. Now I only come here using Chrome + AdBlock.

    I never see ads.. but that's probably because of Firefox + add ons.. you don't need premium
