The advertising at the top of the forum is always geared towards the community. It's actually a place for community members to advertise products and services that would benefit the plantedtank and its members. You will only see advertising pertaining to this hobby up there.
The advertising on the bottom of the forum is selected using various equations, of which one is your browsing history. Other examples are the time of the day you get on (for example, you might see coffee advertisements during the early morning).
As you can see, the ads are very small and we try to make it so that it is not obstructing you from the forum

I'm basically asking, is it going to be one sided? If so there are many other Planted Tank forums that make it a joy to visit as opposed to being insulted by such an offensive political ad that's forced down our throats. Way to be objective PetGuide or should I say verticalscope. This is a "Planted Tank Forum" not a place to push your political agenda.
