Ad on bottom of page finally drove me to Ad Blocker

I'm pretty tolerant of ads on websites - I understand they pay the bills, but many sites including RFD have started putting ads at the bottom of the page that covers the content being accessed. This tactic is too aggressive for me - I finally broke down and installed an Ad Blocker!

If you browse while logged in they shouldn’t appear. Ads at the bottom of the page should only be a problem for lurkers.

Yup, it's only for those who are not logged in. Since @oIIIIIo has an account, they shouldn't be seeing that ad. If you need assistance because you are seeing it while logged in, please let me know and I'll have a developer look into that for you.

Good to know. I often browse RFD from another device without bothering to log in, and periodically flush the browser data on my main PC.
