I'm seeing it with Chrome, but I don't have the Ad block installed.

I have not seen any on anything I have been doing on AQ... Not sure what is up with that. I'm using Chrome on one of my PC's and IE on the other.

OK, now I am, on the "Tutorials" section of the website now.

I was trying to read this page and after almost every paragraph there is an ad strip. Must be my browser?

The tutorials have Google Ads on them, but you shouldn't be seeing them after "almost every paragraph." There's only a maximum of 3 ad blocks per page. There should be one just after the summary on the page, somewhere in the middle of the page, and another one at the end of the page.

The tutorials have always had them, though. That's nothing new.

Shows how often I go over there!

I kind of suspect the vast majority of people who read that page find it through a Google search. Since they aren't letterboxers and unlikely to ever become premium members, I figured I'd put ads on them. They can pay for using the site through that method. =)

And I figure it's not too onerous for AQ members because while most people will look at the tutorial at some point, it's not usually the kind of thing they go back to over and over again making it annoying.

And thus, the reason for the ads there... But they've literally been there since a couple of months after I started Atlas Quest!

I only see one small ad. Unobtrusive, and no photos or things that flash to distract.
