Premium membership - less ads, or no ads?

The amount of advertising and click-bait on this forum is maddening. I see that premium membership promote "less" ads. How much less is "less"? Is there an ad-free option? I'm looking for reason not to exit the forum for good.

The most advertising I see is the "Latest Honda News" panel on the lower right of the screen... IF I take the time to even notice it's there. It doesn't flash or flicker or refresh to try to grab my attention so I usually forget it's there. Otherwise NO advertising. But I have the Lifetime membership. Don't know if the Premium may have any different.

Here are screen shots of the very top of this thread page and the very bottom. The panel on the right of the bottom shot is the Honda News panel I was referring to.

I paid the $40 to upgrade to lifetime for that very reason. Sick of the ads and having them locking up my computer. Don't get any ads and no other issues since upgrading. With all of the great information here, I figure I am way ahead of that $40 in savings.

These kinds of forum problems need to be reported to the Admins of the forum since I cannot, or do not know how to, resolve forum account issues. Send a note to @ctx1300admin .

Can you grab me a screenshot of which ad you're referring to?

Agreed. The forum is nearly unusable. Not only do the ads invade every part of your screen, they are impossible to get rid of. The motorcycle videos are the real problem. Guess I'd pay a little but I am too frugal to start paying anything outrageous. Guess I should look into cost of the other memberships.
