....or are the new banners here on EIC slowing the site down? Seems like every time I open a new page here, my browsers always saying "waiting on pub(dot)clicksor(dot)net or something along those lines. As it says in the title, "is it just me" (or my browser/plugins)?

Using Firefox

I don't see them, and I never notice any slowdown - if anything, the forums seem quite speedy to me lately. I use Safari, but I have Safari AdBlock installed - get an AdBlocker for Firefox and you should be fine.

Ads = Chris's mortgage... and other expenditures such as servers, utility bill etc.

The ads/banners are what keep EIC or the other everything sites from "asking to donate".

I never see them. Firefox has some amazing add on features, try using adblock. It will also let you specifically block animated flashing avatars etc.

Does the Safari Ad blocker stop those VERY annoying box ads that move from the left or right to the center of the screen? As well as that full page ad where you need to click in the top left "continue to website"?

Those two ads piss me off.

It stops everything for me. I haven't seen an ad or anything like one for months.

I don't use Megavideo, but I wold assume it would work there. Like I said, haven't seen an ad, banner, or pop-up of any sort in quite a while.

Thanks everyone. I installed adblock for Firefox and all is well again. Everytime I clicked anything here at EIC I kept getting "pop-under" windows and it slowed me down to a crawl. I understand Ad's pay the bills and I wasn't trying to bicker about it, but it had just happened recently that EIC is using a different banner company and I was actually trying to see if my PC was infected or if everyone else noticed the change. Thanks again!

That they might be, but they get the bills paid. If you don't like them, give Chris a check, and I am sure he would be happy to remove them.
sounds good, how much charity does chris need? i'll be happy to donate to a nice site. just let me know who to write it out to and how much.

feel like donating to a brotha that's down on his luck? I need about 6 grand to get that new TV I always wanted. It will make me feel so much better, and you will feel better for making me feel better...

He needs a lot. Whatever you can spare. Give Chris a lookup, and ask him how much he needs. You could also just buy all of your accessories from the store at the top of the site. That would probably also be quite helpful to someone trying to make a living!:p

Lol now I'm curious as to how much profit he makes. Obviously the ads are needed to pay for the hosting and bandwidth because with this many users and the buttload of content, the monthly fees must be huge. Chris doesn't make a living off these 9 websites does he?
