Granted, it's not exactly in the spirit of 'keeping forums subsciption-free' but if you use Safari, you can install AdBlock

I never realised just how many intrusive and annoying adverts there are until I had to stop using Kaspersky.
Why did you have to stop using Kaspersky?
It's never let a single one through so I don't know what I'm missing!
Putting out fire with gasoline
Not sure you can have the latter without the former – as The Boss said above, these things have to be paid for...
as long as users are not lost, importantly.

Strongly against ads and strogly in favour of forum enhancements.
But are you prepared to pay for them then?
I do not think you are expecting forum users to pay for anything. What I mean is ads will drive users off the forum as will poor functioality.
It happened to me once today where the whole screen was filled by an advert, i just clicked on the close button & the advert disappeared, i don't think i've ever really had a problem with adverts, they've never really bothered me to be honest.

Sizzers, I use a first generation netbook for forum and Kaspersky is just too heavy a burden for the poor little thing. It ground to a halt but moving to AVG has restored its usefulness.

I appreciate that you're running a business and you need to maximise revenue, and accept that averts are a necessary evil. That said, when they invade my entire screen it's extremely annoying. It's not what I associate with a reputable business - it's a really unsubtle amush. It casts both the site and the advertiser in a bad light. For the benefit of your advertisers, I've got a mental blacklist of companies that over-step the mark (with unsolicted emails, pushy sales techniques, local businesses that ignore my "no junkmail" sign etc), and my next telly won't be a Samsung!
I have some home cinema and Sonos stuff.
