    Default who put the advertising in the threads

    having the advertising in the thread really makes it hard to read. every thread i open has an add in the first post and the post is shrunk to a very thin column.

    Can this be removed, it makes the thread hard to read and I think the add banner can be placed where all the others are.

    This change was made recently (today or yesterday) and it really sucks.

    Default Problem with formatting

    Hi

    Between 8AM on October 1st and 7PM how new posts appear has suddenly change from normal width text to narrow display of only a few words per line.

    Anybody else having this problem?

    Cheers Phil

    This post shows up on my tablet as being 4 to 5 words per line once I post in.

    I'm trying to place ads within the first and last post of threads from google. This would only impact unregistered and normal users.
