What is interesting is that I use a program called ABP (Ad Block Plus) so I never see advertisements on Boreme. The advertisers pay according to the number of users or visits and I am in those counts but I never see what the advertisers are paying for.

Good tip. Thanks. Wasn't it nice of those Adblockplus people to develop it as open source - and distribute it for free? I wonder if they're all communists?

Actually, they are community supported. You can submit code, bring in suggestions, or add and improve filters. You can donate money if you find the utility useful. People in the community are not forced by their government to participate so it's not a communist supported project.
