Better Ad Filter/Option

So i can turn off tops ads but it only turns it off in the forums not homepage. Ads are too big i wish i could turn them off; all of them. i would also like to turn off the ads at the bottom of the page.

Ads pay for the site to exist. It's not an inexpensive operation as we have two full timers (not including blake and I), a few freelancers, and a couple of dedicated servers.

We ask users not block ads on the site, and not encourage others to do so.

We could consider a paid ad-removal option if there was enough interest in the future, but I'm not sure there would be.

Well i guess that make sense. In terms of pay to block option what would that be roughly?
