Hello jane, you were a member of a additional user group that's why you were seeing the adds. Now, i have removed you from the post participant group & you should be fine now.I'm subscribed and getting the same amount of ads I was before. Zappos in a top banner and a credit union ad in a block on the last post in this thread. Is that normal? Also having weird columns of text in the top posts.
For others, i am working on a solution, please be patient.
