Adds taking over?

Hi, I have been a almost daily visitor of tomshardware for the past couple of years and I must say that I really enjoy the site and find many of the topics covered very interesting and useful. However, it seems like advertisements are slowly taking over to the extent that it is making the site slower and more frustrating which may ultimately demotivate me to visit the site and I find this to be a sad thing. Maybe it is just me, but I have a suspicion that there are many others that feel the same way in which case it would be a wise for tomshardware to keep this in mind for the future. I fully understand that the advertisements serve a good purpose if they are used in a way that enriches the site and does not hinder users.

Thanks for reading! Peace!

  1. Get FireFox + AdBlock Plus.
  2. Doesn't block the daily Logicbuy ads. They need to get out of the "news" section. They need to leave or become part of a "deals/ price compare" section on the main page.
  3. ^Umm... just DON'T click on it! They do have some good deals on it. Got a Sidwinder X5 for $20 because of those deals.

    That's because they are articles ;) It's not like the news team actually wants to post them...

    Umm... ok. But they are in the news section, not the articles section. Why can't Tom's just have an additional section for price comparing/ deals?
  6. Because it hasn't been deemed necessary by "those upstairs."
