First of all, you're an idiot (not an insult, just my thoughts on your post), which is why you have been removed from staff, and I am sure you don't care, since we're "inconsiderate."
W-E was made because of ads. The ads ARE part of W-E. They have been around since the beginning, and no one was ever lead to believe it would be an ad-free site. You willingly registered when there were ads, just as every other member her has. And NOW that you're registered, you are complaining about something that has been here since the beginning? Who's inconsiderate?
If members don't like the ads (as in, can't deal or get around them), then why the hell did they register to begin with?
Oooh, so now that Amish wants to make money it's the entire administratoin to blame? If I recall, I run the forums. Amish owns them. Amish is in control of the ads, and they aren't going to change. Amish is not administration, though. Only myself, Kaneanite, and Rajah are admins. And the hacks here...they weren't installed for me or Cody or Chris. They were installed for the users. The style, you know, Chromo? Picked by the users, not administration. I picked the geltech one, but left Chromo around for USERS to pick. I never forced one style on people, but I think the next style will be done that way to end confusion.
W-E's "biggest rival," or rather NoDQ, removed ads. Sure. (But for how long? And people we probably more pissed when they returned.) But you do not know how Aaron Rift is dealing with this, and how much he complains. Then again I don't expect you to. Hell, you might know. Who knows? All I'm saying is he is likely going to put more and more ads on the forums. Besides, they do make some members pay for some of their features or forums. And don't mention the ads -- we both know you probably wouldn't spend money to remove the ads because you already can...
Anyway, WEForums is ran with the users in mind. We even try to be LAX on the rules (some of us, rather...). I'm not ban-crazy (whether you believe it or not...) like some admins on various other forums are.
Anyway, you can't blame administration on ads, and I wouldn't go so far as to blame Amish. You ALL voluntarily come to this site knowing ads are waiting for you. So it's not some big "surprise" that you just opened up....
