Ads on homepage

The Pentax forums homepage has been featuring ads for a while now.

Is the sentence "Our site is 100% user-supported" still accurate?

Isn't it unfortunate that the Pentax forums home page features ads for other Camera brands?

If it were possible to disable Canon ads, I'd do it. You guys should be happy that the forum isn't running ads - the revenue potential would be close to 5 digits a month

On the whole, I'd say that statement is still accurate. I've been working overtime, and the ads are just covering the costs. The homepage redesign + logo was $200, on top of my own hours of work.

Closing this before people start debating; feel free to discuss this privately if you'd like.
