I see a very small Tire Rack ad in the upper right, and a blank space on the right. I use AdBlock+.

I have the ads too.

I like the folks on this site, but have just about had it with the BS.
Smaller screen, takes longer to load every page.....and I'm paying for this "improvement"?

Yea, I installed adblock+ myself earlier, so that is what I see now also. but with my eyes getting older and weaker, the small screen is not a plus.

I run at 125% zoom, the white space on the right is less than 10% of the screen.

I got a PM back this morning from IB Jose, he says that they were doing updating advertising layouts across all of their sites and ran into some tech issues on FTE. Promise to get rid of it ASAP.

Thank goodness the pesky ads are gone, it had nothing to do with this site adding ad space.

I use Internet Explorer on my laptop running Window's 8.1. The only ad I can find is the small Tire Rack ad next to my log in name (about the size of a thumbnail). I just read in the benefits of a Premium Membership, it says that 1 or 3 year members get fewer ads, not no ads. "EDIT" Sorry to bring this back up, I didn't realize that I was on page #2 and this had already been put to rest.
