RE[6]: Stop blocking ads!

No, I have few ads, no more then two per page and they are gif/jpgs/pngs, no heavy flashing or flash. Its a rather tech oriented site and most of the users use Firefox (over 70%), and I serve the ads myself, so I doubt I'm getting screwed, its just the default filter filters out my ads... The problem has gotten so bad that I'm planning to move it over to a different subdomain that doesn't contain "ads" in it so less of the default filters will block it.
