Thank you. I'm fine with the ads being on profiles.
Just to let you know? I have dial-up and Norton anti-virus scan. After the changes to the site, I was constantly being taken to the same error page when trying to access entries & navigating IJ while using my free accounts. (Unless I hit stop quickly several times, but that would mean that pages and comments would not fully load.) I checked quickly just now, and am no longer getting an error page.
It may be an issue with the dial-up and the ads not being compatible. It could very well be the virus scan's way of trying to protect the system from something it sees as harmful. For now, I'll do most of my navigating with my perm account. But I wanted to bring it up in case anyone else runs into the same problem.
