I opt-in for the DBSTalk banner ads in order to help with the impressions count. Occasionally, I will 'click-through' an ad that is of interest to me. However, I take issue with the site allowing Comcast Xfinity "Ditch the Dish" anti-DBS ads (see attachment) to appear on the site.

Although I am a Comcast sub currently, I believe in and support the DBS industry and its subscribers. I cannot see a situation where Comcast or any cable company would ever permit Directv or DishNetwork ads to run.

I'm sure there must be a way that advertisements which run counter to the interests and values of DBSTalk users can be blocked.

Thank you Chris and mods for this great site (not sight). ;)

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.
