That can be kinda subjective. It's ok for me. But I really hate the ad's being in random posts. Kind of throws things off. Can make for more scrolling cause it squeezes the text of a large post to a small column. The ad's pop under a quote box (thankfully under). Overall, the ad's make for messy to read posts. Also gives the impression of a commercialized forum. Do I need to start worrying about pop-ups, pop-unders, potential ad's that contain drive-by installs? I should say, I don't think that this is an actual concern, but for a new member viewing the forum for the first time, they might get that impression. These are just some concerns. However..... I can get used to the layout of the over all forum.
