Default Is it just me?

Who broke my favourite forum?

Is it just me experiencing this?

Is the whole reading part narrower now?

Just for adverts?

I have not even looked at any
of the adverts!

Reading posts is painful
especially the first post!

Y U DU DIS?!

I am seeing the same narrow column, but not on every thread I read.

The ads suck. Takes like almost twice as long to load a page on our 5mbps network.

Websites have ads?
Adblock + Noscript works wonders when combo'd together

I used to not mind ads when they were just static pictures, but a lot of ad networks have allowed friggin scripts in their ad network that compromise PC's in the past I started blocking them.
That and those stupid ass things that popup, and cover 95% of the page, and can't be closed.

Ways to guarantee most people won't buy your product make a ad that pops up, flashes, moves, and covers a sites content.

Syco- with those things do you not see the forum as the picture DVP posted?

Today I see three adverts (one repeated, so four in total) and I actually looked at what they were just for this post...
Something about 100 dollars free spending money at Walt Disney World...
Twitter...
and...
Join the Royal Navy...

Oh...let me quickly book up Walt Disney World...then try to join the Navy (!)...then talk about it on Twitter..
Then my life would be complete....

1. Craftsman Tool Mega Sale 5-50% Featured Tools
2. Earn 25,000 Starpoints from American Express
3. Acura 8-speed Dual-clutch Transmission
4. Social Security Sucks

So I'd go tool shopping, earn some starpoints to pay for it, then put my extra starpoints toward making payments on my new 8-speed Acura, and go home to a crappy social security check. Maybe I'll go earn some more starpoints to offset that a little...

damn forgot to come to this sub forum for over a month lol

but to answer your question nope no ads between posts, and nothing covering anything up.
There is a bar at the side that has 6 RCU recent reviews listed I'd say is like 15% of the screen, but after the list ends its empty space.
