You missed my point. I PAY to come here, not be bombarded by ads, any ads. The Obama ads just made me think about it more because I'm not a supporter. You're right. i don't have to click on it or read it but I can't help but SEE it. At least facebook (free, by the way) gives you an opportunity to block certain ads.
Does HBO have commercials except for their own programming? HBO is a PREMIUM channel. I think we might be getting a little short-changed here, that's all.
