Default Google Ads

Does anybody really click on them? I find them to be more of a nuisance and more so when its between the threads and quick reply.

Oh and another suggestion.. shrink the width of the quick reply.

The google ads will soon be changed to true advertisers. Since hitting the quick reply button brings you straight down to the Quick Reply dialog box, I don't find them much of a problem. Now if you would have to scroll down to the quick reply every time...THEN I could see them being a problem.

The google links are mostly there to help our ranking in Google searches so clikcing on them usually doesn't help us. There will be other ads which by clicking on you will help the site but for now, the best way to support HWC is spreading our name.
