Ads too large.

Im getting these ginormous ads on the forum and post pages that require me to scroll on my ipad about a half page before I see content. I get you wanna monetize this place, but, this is very irritating, and the ads themselves are those generic ones that auto enter your location “get better tv reception in blahblah ny” stupid.

Monetize the site, but dont make it painful for your users or theyre gunna leave. Limit the height of ads to the standard thin ad, or better yet just the sidebar only.

You can also use a ios browser like Ghostery or similar that block ads. I don't really like browsing with IPAD or my phone as being old means my keyboard skills are more suited to a real keyboard.
