Even if we have lurkers that don't want to join and don't want to see the ads, they can opt out by clicking on the help section of the ads and saying that they do not want to see them. So it's totally easy (and free) for guests to get rid of the ad is they desire.
You on crack? What help section of the ad to turn them off? Its a 200 pixel wide ad, there ain't no help section.
Oh well, its a good lesson for anybody out there in internet-marketing land. If anybody wants you to implement Vibrant ads RUN FAST THE OTHER WAY. Because--
1) They really annoy
your user base.
2) Green ads on blue backgrounds make the words illegible
3) Like who wants to buy Avery labels when they are looking for kayak porn. I am sure they are really effective for the advertisers. NOT!
