I don't use the forum's ad preference blocker and don't mind seeing the ads. Sometimes the ads are interesting and useful, and even help to add some bright colors to the monitor screen. Does allowing the forum ads to appear on my screen generate more income for the forum than if the ad preferences were turned off? If I click on an ad for more information, does it generate more income for the forum than if the ad wasn't clicked on at all? I think that it could benefit the forum by letting members know whether allowing the ads helps the forum to maintain its operations or not. Thank you for indulging my curiosity.
