I have no problem with the concept of ads here at all, but I think the execution could potentially be better.
I would definately agree that ad-sense would make more , er, sense.
I would also be prepared to pay to get an ad free version of the site. As I imagine many here would.
Obviously blocking non-paying users would result in the forum shrinking to a point that makes in 'not as good'. This is not what I am suggesting.
But I use this site daily and would be prepared to pay an annual sub rather than the Amazon ads.
