Err, we pay for our hosting too. Why do you think we need ads in teh first place? To pay for the company Aston Martin each of us has?

The ads are in place to pay for our hosting. Did you really think we would pay this out of our own pockets? Anyway, stuff sometimes goes wrong, even on websites like OSNews and Reddit. We are not gods, you know. At least we're open and honest about it.

David has just emailed us that the issue is most likely fixed at the moment. If not, please let us know.

A lot.

Regarding advertisements, I would also prefer text-based or jpeg/gif non-animated non-javascript ads. But that wouldn't fly with the advertisers.
