    Political ads have been turned off on the web site.

    When ad inventory on this site is filled with political ads it gives the impression to some that the site is partisan and endorsing some political parties/causes over another. This is not the case.

    This again chips away at limited ad revenue, so a reminder once again :

    Remove ads - subscribe

    I appreciate your principled stand on this even though it costs you ad revenue. Kudos to you for this decision.

    Chess should be non-political. A noble decision, the more so if it reduces your revenue.
