    By and large, online ad revenue aside from streaming video sites is dead. Why? Advertisers have caught on to the fact that many users are using Adblock and other plug ins to disable the ads from loading, and now only pay for the ads that actually get loaded. Perfect example, there was a really popular open source oriented website that just shut down despite having really good traffic numbers, The H Online. Because people interested in Open Source news are particularly tech savvy, the vast majority used AdBlock and ergo, no ad revenue. Thinking this would work for Dawg is ridiculous. http://www.h-online.com/

    if the ad is too intrusive like popping up or is a 5 second load page than it is annoying. if it is like SFN with the banner above the thread, i have no problem with that. (yes, i made a thread at sfn making fun of their mark the badger ad, but it was just ball busting :p).
    no idea how other people would respond to ad banners :dontknow:

    What I'm trying to say is that it would be a waste of time. I'm guessing Mutt benefits from the fact that a lot of Stern oriented advertisers are too fucking dumb to understand how web browsers work (no offense TSS Taylor), just like how they don't realize Stern barely has any marketing power these days (or maybe they do, I flipped by the channel the other day and heard an ad for "Boy Butter", not exactly classy advertising). All Dawg putting banners up would accomplish is annoying the few people dumb enough not to use Adblock Plus while generating little to no revenue.
