1) Its a free website, the only revenue stream we get is through advertising.
2) we get 13 million visitors a month, and have over 1.2 million registered members. People arent going to use other sites because of the small inconvenience of adverts.

This is the greatest, biggest, and most informative guitar based website in the world.
It costs an incredible amount to run it, and keep updating it with new content and features, as well as running offices in russia and the USA.

you speak of ads as if they're viruses. they pay to put their stuff on here. it's not like they find a site, and plant their ads in annoying places. without them, this site could not exist.

if any particular ads are causing you grief, then head to the site feedback section (bad advertising reports) and read the info in there.
