At least the TMI area could be opted into and if you didn't want to be exposed to the stuff in there, you didn't have to be. The ads are NOT optional for everybody, as is quite obvious by responses in the thread.

What really makes me sad is that this site is a wonderful tool for promoting cloth diapering, yet I wonder how many people are turned off by the adds on the very first page they see, and never become members. I wonder if those people might have decided not to CD or given up on it b/c they couldn't get the help with it they could have here, if not for the ads.

No they just go to other cloth diapering sites that are more family friendly. There were quite a few people join the other board saying they would rather be there then here at DS because the nasty ads that show up here!
