    I don't think the owner has much to do with the ads. They are google ads and unless we want to pay to use the site, that's how the site is supported.

    HOWEVER, Ad Block is a wonderful thing and I don't ever have one ad on this site. ;)

    They have ads on this forum? I never noticed before but my adblocker thing is saying it is blocking 4 ads right now. I wouldn't think that there would be that many clicks on the ads, due to the type of site this is.

    Hello TCassidy,
    Thanks for bringing this to attention, I am the new IT admin.
    I have tweaked the google ads to show only relevant ads (disabled irrelevant ads).
    I have tested the side bar ads and none of them download malware or toolbars.
    The ads are posted by other Christian small business or authors who would want to reach more people.
    Think of this as newspapers circulars and tv commercials.
    If it gets too distracting, do let me know.
