This is my feeling, exactly.

Also, i would like to see clarified the bandwidth issue. Isnt Blues News part of the UGO Network thus using their own bandwidth?

If that is true, Blue gets his bandwidth for free, right?

Now, besides that, i still think we should support Blue's work. So, we have some solutions:

1) more intrusive ads
2) subscription model with ad-free navigation for members that pay
3) paypal donations and less ads (just keep the basic banners)

I wont dwelve into those 3 possibilities because that has been done many times before.

I'll simply state that i would prefer #3 "donations and just basic banners".

Everyone seems willing to donate to make the take-over advertisement disappear but lets not forget that making such oferts thru a practically anonymous board is worthless. Im sure Blue himself has weighted that many times, he knows that once he puts the Paypal thingy, "theres no way back".
