So adds are here...

Yeah, I haven't blogged anything in almost a year and I'm thinking of picking it up again (I used to write often on the "old site"). Anyway, I just now noticed (but maybe I'm just slow) that Giant Bomb is finally sporting some stylish adds on the front page--adds are all the rage, am I right? Yeah... I guess it was inevitable from day one. Still, I have some mixed feelings about it. Sure enough, I want our Giant Bombers to do well when it comes to the financial side of this thing. That said, I have really enjoyed an add-free Giant Bomb this past year. It just seems so... peaceful. Especially when I occasionally venture onto one of the other sites that cover "the industry", I'm always struck by how cluttered those sites appear--this is not in the least due to all the adds, of course. In contrast, returning to Giant Bomb can best be described as a quiet experience; it is part of the appeal of the site for me. But yeah, I guess I'll just have to adjust to this new situation. Like I said, I really want the guys to succeed with this project. If putting up with some adds is what it takes, then that's something I will be glad to get used to. What about you guys?
