"The page is still loading, please wait to add favorites."

A few other threads have asked about the error message "The page is still loading, please wait to add favorites." and have found solutions in turning off NoScript or AdBlock. I ran into the same issue this week and, after doing some investigating, found it was specifically necessary to make sure the cloudfront.net domain was "Allowed" in AdBlock. [more inside]

I see ads on Metafilter

So, Um, I'm logged in and I'm getting upper right graphical ads on MeFi and AxMe. Is that on purpose? Because, y'know, I thought the purpose of being logged in all the time and having an account was to not have to see ads, and I didn't see an announcement that they'd be starting. Then again, if it's necessary to pay for bandwidth, OK, but I'd prefer a donation drive.

How does ad filtering affect Metafilter's bottom line?

Like many of us, I've got AdBlock installed in Mozilla/Firefox. I've gathered from reading threads that Google textads appear in a number of threads, often with hilarious results. However, I don't see these ads because I've got the iframe or whatever filtered out.

Does filtering the ads affect the pageviews or whatever mechanism is used to pay Matt? If so, I'll happily unblock the ads to keep Metafilter solvent. If not, I'm just as happy to skip them.
