Advertising I can handle, but what are these huge box ads on the main page now?

They have been there since the launch of Finity, aka the new layout of the web site.

P.S. there is only 1 square ad. 3 ads all together.

I was sort of proud of myself. I actually clicked an ad the other day. From a former adblocker, I think it is a big step.

Question, as a subscriber why can't I have a ad-less site? A few other sites I donate to give me that.

The second tier of Subscribing removes advertisements from the site.
