Are these new? I just started seeing them tonight. Are we really to the point of having ads intermixed with our replies?

Thanks, Custom. At first I didn't understand why you linked me to that post, but I figured it out after I scrolled down

Read further down in the thread. Bill took it off-topic.

When I first saw it, I thought there was a system bug, or my browser was screwing up. It seems to be at the end of the thread, and goes away when a response is posted. Does it bring in more to have it in the thread, or is it for better exposure? They don't bother me any, now that I'm over the "WTF - how did that get there?!"

I like the idea. They are less intrusive than the ads at the top, which really arent that intrusive. And they go away after you refresh once or twice.

Haha, same here. Do the "BC System" posts actually have ads within them, or are they blank? Cuz for me they are just blank...Just like the ones that everyone sees at the top...which I don't seem to see either
