"advertising is how you pay for things without paying for them" - Morgan Webb (among many others, I'm sure..but Morgan is prettier)I'm fine with the ads, I'd be even more fine with them if the extra revenue translates into cheaper expansions and reduced subscription fees. I read the forums only occasionally, so the ads aren't that big a deal to me and Blizzard is a company I support, so I disabled ad block for the forums. Blizzard is a for-profit company and advertising is a major source of revenue. I'm kind of surprised they didn't do this sooner

I'd be happy with them if there was the slightest hint that the subscription price would drop, but on contrary, Blizz recently said that they're "more than happy" with their price and don't plan to change anytime soon..On the other hand, an ad or two in websites is something I'm already used to anyway. Specially (sp) if they're fugly.

"I'm fine with the ads, I'd be even more fine with them if the extra revenue translates into cheaper expansions and reduced subscription fees."I agree with that.And I don't visit the forums that often either, so it doesn't bother me that much, but it does have me worrying what's in store for the future.

Cheaper subs and expansions?Jesus. This is already the cheapest gaming-hour-per-dollar entertainment channel in my life. Seriously.Ads? seriously, the solution is simple. Block'em or don't and then forget about it. This isn't an issue to even fuss about. ESPECIALLY since its the official, utterly useless forums.
