why all the paid ads in individual posts?
Recently (in the past week or two) I have been seeing quite a lot of posts that contain "ads by google", in addition to the big ad space at the top of every page. I find them to be quite distracting and annoying, and my computer at work sometimes refuses to display the page because of blocked ads.
What is the reason for this, and is there any way to turn it off?
Also, my display when I open a forum post no longer contains the whole page, so I constantly have to scroll left and right to view the content. Is there a way to adjust the view so that the whole page displays?
