    Hi everyone,

    Was thinking of getting an ad on BHW, so just wanted to get a bit of an insight on how advertising works here on BHW. It would be interesting to know how many of you have AdBlock or any other ad-blocking software/browser plugin turned ON specifically on BHW. That would help to understand whether a banner ad is of any real value, as if many of you have AdBlock turned on, you simply wouldn't see the ad and it would be wiser to get a BST running instead (Yes, I know, I'm not eligible for one right now).

    Thanks for your input.

    Also, for added fun, how many of you type "anal" in your address bar and then click the link that shows up when trying to get to Google Analytics? :D

    You can use a BST or an ads banner which is better. People who are always advertising on BHW knows what they gain, that is why they keep on advertising.
