I am not sure what of subscriber you are, but if you are subscribed at professional hacker or project admin, you can disable ads in the "Advertising preferences" of you "Customize your account" setting.

I cannot dictate how you use LWN, I am just saying that the ads are very unobtrusive here compared to most places, so whatever small amount of revenue you can help generate via ads will be appreciated.

Sure _I_ don't see ads on LWN since I'm a subscriber. I was just expressing my opinion that people should not even give a chance for unwanted content to display on their screens.

It does not make economic sense to support LWN by allowing ads to be displayed. Any amount of money LWN will obtain is a fraction of the money the advertisers get from you. It is much more effective to give the money directly to LWN through the subscription.

That implies that a casual reader actually pays money or buys stuff using the ads. If you do not want to be a subscriber (and thus you are not shelling out of your own pocket), whatever fraction you send to LWN by enabling ads will be better than nothing.

Sure, for subscribers it might not make sense, but I generally find the ads here on LWN very unobtrusive, so I do not mind.
