Get FireFox + NoScript and it is the equivalent of having Finheaven VIP except without the VIP Forum.

Really? This site costs money to run. This is the best sports forum of all 32 teams I've seen, if you don't ike it become a VIP, otherwise don't complain.

Firefox + the AdBlock Plus plugin works great as well. Many of the plugins that work with FireFox are also available for Chrome.

Bandwidth costs lots of money and forums suck up a lot of it. VIP subscriptions alone do not pay the bills, so this is a way for the site admins/owners to pay that cost.

Ads inside forum messages is going to far IMO.

"if you don't like it leave" blah blah blah

If you get something for free, there really is no grounds to gripe. I say do whatever it takes to keep the site going...if that means ads then I accept it. Keep on keppin on finheaven.

We have 11,000 active members. When 25% of them become VIP I will happily remove ads.

Get it all out, lol. In two days people managed to flame every aspect of the team.. might as well get after them ads. Burn it all the way to the ground and then burn it some more. Gotta love the swings of this site.

As I mentioned in the other thread, this business model doesn't really work for this site. People have no incentive to pay $20 to remove ads from a forum. As many people mentioned, they use a free plugin to block the ads anyway.

A better strategy is to sell stuff. Sell FH merch and open an affiliate store. I would gladly buy all my Dolphin gear through FH affiliate links. If you had a well-integrated affiliate store on this site, I imagine it could be pretty successful, especially if you made it a prominent part of the forum.

Bro the simple way to avoid the ads is pony up and get a VIP membership and help the site out.
