    I personally donate a small amount each month towards the upkeep of the forum. I don't know how much it costs to keep this place going but it generates a lot of traffic that's for sure. Perhaps if enough of us donate a small amount each month the revenue generated from ads won't be necessary, but I admit to not really knowing how it works.

    Yeah, I do, but the Amazon BS still finds a way to redirect my web browser to their page.

    If you NEED an ad blocker to make a site even slightly usable then theres a major problem imo

    Bump:

    For those on phones, go into your respected phone provider's App Store and download Firefox. Then download Ublock Origins and Noscript. The default browser shipped with your phone is crap.

    I'd think uBlock Origin (in advanced mode) would mostly make NoScript redundant since you can set it to block frames and scripts while whitelisting domains you trust.

    Also I wonder if even just vanilla Firefox with its native content blocking could block the site-breaking ads. I've never seen the ads in question so I have no idea.

    I've been using so many ad blockers (uBlock Origin, uMatrix, blocked ads in the Windows host file). I use Pale Moon on Windows and Linux, and Chromium on Android, that I've never noticed them. It makes sense as to why the site has been loading so slowly for me though, but all this stuff is blocked way out for me. I wonder what site hosting costs for Sega-16?
