    Yes you should...unless you have something installed to block them.

    Yeah, I've white listed MacForums site. A few ads are no hassle really. Sometimes I'm even interested in what's advertised. Mac Keeper ads annoy me a little though.

    Thanks Rod. Ads on Mac-Forums really not that bad. I've been to some sites where there were so many ads (pop-up ads, overlay ads, video ads, regular static ads, etc.)...where everything on my computer grinds to a halt until all the ads finish loading.
