Lightbulb Activation of ads on HOL for guest only

Dear members,

With the upcoming HOL move to the new server, I will activate some google advertisement in HOL for guest only. (like EAB)
It means that EAB's members won't see the ads
And if ads are active, I will remind you to login at EAB to remove them.

Why this change ?
I need some money to buy a new Xenforo licence to replace EAB, and I want to be able to switch on a more expensive server (maybe cloud) when the new one will not be powerfull enough to host everything.

Best regards

So it will show me ads in anonymous browsing, typically when I come from browser HOL search module. Okay, if it is needed, I have no problem with it.

It you already have one EAB's logged cookie on your computer, you won't have any ads

No, the current links will be redirected to updated page.
I don't expect it will load slower, should be the same.

Suggestion: Ads for ALL members with under 50 or 100 posts... Means at least those A-holes who register to spam forums will be generating some income for EAB and even if genuine users its not unreasonable to place ads on your forum

I do not like adds, but I understood Your needs.
If it brings EAB some money I am ok with that.
