Not a plant question but maybe my complaint will get to the right set of ears or eyes.
Please stop breaking up our blogs with advertising and photos. It breaks the flow of the blog and the photos in the ads almost become part of the blog. Put them at the end or the beginning. Almost makes me want to stop blogging or blog on a different site and I love NGA.

Hey microbe, they have to pay the bills, or else they wouldn't even be here for everyone like you and me. I just look at what I like, and don't look at what I don't like. Try it.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

I agree but there is a limit to how intrusive advertisers should. Put them down the side, beginning or end but not every two or three inches of a blog.

Once you've made 100 contributions to the plant database, i.e., photos, comments, plant data, you can then disable the ads in your profile settings.

Some of the more intrusive ads are being phased out. It's hard because we don't fully control it so we have to switch agencies which is something we're working on.
