    Does anyone else find the excessive advertising on Diigo annoying. It's in my Dashboard now and nearly fills my sidebar. Everywhere I go on the site, I'm bombarded. I understand the necessity of displaying ads, but please make some tasteful decisions about quantity and location. I was going to introduce my students to Diigo, but I think I'll look for less commercialized alternatives.

    sorry that there do seem to be a little too many ads now. Please bear with us as we are experimenting with monetization models. The ads should be reduced over time, and yes, there will be a pro account option.

    Is this happening anytime soon? I'd like to be able to use Diigo in a public school setting but can't with the ads. I'd be willing to pay for a pro version.

    Me too! I'm using Diigo in an academic setting, and the ads really don't fit in with that. I'm looking forward to the speedy introduction of pro accounts.

    Ooh. Well, I have Adblock so it's never a problem with me. I love the idea of a pro option, though.

    Just to further show there is support for it, I would be thrilled to pay a nominal fee to remove the advertisements.

    we hear you.

    I am not really worried about those ads because you´ll find them on every site. I am used to ads and I am able to ignore them.

    I usually block 'em all (shh! don't tell Our Sponsors!) but when I ease the blocking, this one keeps cropping up, amuses me:

    Thanks ImageShack!

    Hmmph. Just LOOK at the STATE of that typeface! Did someone say "mid 1990s bitmaps please"?

    4/10. Could do better. Personally, I wouldn't trust 'em to Triple My Traffic. YMMV :)

    Peace,
    GRAHAM

    I created a separate topic,

    I never knew that there were even ads?! Please people, don't start agitating for a paid version sans ads, just get ADBLOCK and FLASHBLOCK (oh yeah, and use firefox...)and rest easy.

    That's missing the point at http://groups.diigo.com/group/Diigo_HQ/content/1167230#2

    I want the members of the public (most of whom are probably not users of Diigo) who receive Diigo Meta links (or annotated links) to see:

    * the annotated content, pure and simple; not confused by advertising.
