This is just an observation I have about ads on FREE sites such as SparkPeople. I absolutely love having free sites to visit. There is no on-line group to which I am a member that does not have ads "all over the place." I tune them out, unless something interesting catches my eye. I have actually gotten some useful information from ads on free sites and have occasionally ordered some products based on such ads. I can read a magazine or watch a TV show and not be annoyed by ads. The same is true, for me, about ads on great sites like SparkPeople.
I think it is excellent that some sites, for a fee, allow members to join and not see ads. However, I have nothing but praise for legitimate sites like SparkPeople that provide a free, high quality service.
