Ads inside forum posts

On the Cuba forum, We just noticed as ad appearing inside a member's post. Is this just the start? (expanded view)

I refreshed the page a few times, sometimes the ad changes, sometimes it doesn't appear.

My thinking is that pretty soon the ads will be front and center in our faces so we won't miss them.

Say it ain't so Joe...

Thanks Platypus_Rex,

I saw it once I changed my view to expanded (I keep my in the collapsed, compact view) and did a reload and it was gone. The member self-reported that post and it was removed but I am guessing that didn't have anything in particular to do with it.

I wonder if any ads will appear in the collapsed view?

I would imagine in the collapsed view they would appear in the third column. Which I guess was it's purpose all along..

Found one - in this very thread, in collapsed view.

I suppose they could replace the ads with a membership fee.
