I suspect this will come up, and I wanted to explain. The previous banner ad was sat directly under the navigation, and picking up too many accidental "low quality" clicks. This can harm the site, so "padding" was introduced so any stray menu clicks are much less likely to hit the ads.
The result is a tiny reduction in vertical space for the things that matter.
(Subscribers don't see ads at all, so are not impacted by the above.)

Originally posted by @russAFAICT it is.
This should now be fixed.
Originally posted by @flyingwolfI wish more sites gave the option of ad-free for a fee. I'd be happy to pay a fair price for almost everywhere I go, provided that I don't have to endure advertising.
Agreed. Non-subscribers are getting a terrific site and all for free. A small price to pay in my view!
