I don't think you need to be a supporting member. It's just a question of disabling ads in preferences. I've got these horrors, too.
It also begs the question of what does HBF flog on Amazon and e-by-gum, I couldn't find any tangible products.

Supporting members used to be able to turn adverts off but it looks like a setting may have changed as I now see them with the "don't view adverts" option ticked in my preferences, I am sure @THBF will let us know later.

They are affiliate links, so whatever you buy at the target website there's a bit of cash back to THBF.

We're experts on beer and those do the forum no favours.
As Chopps said in post #9 they are affiliate links making money for THBF which helps keep the forum running.
Supporting members pay £6 per year to get the benefits listed below one of which is "The ability to turn off advertisements" i have a feeling as i said above a setting has changed forcing supporting members to view them even if they choose not to, i am sure we will find out soon enough when @THBF logs in.

See if you can see disable sponsor advertising in your preferences. I think I'm seeing the settings correctly, but I'm not seeing it on my Preferences. So please check yours. And let me know.

I have checked the settings and it should be working for you. This should be working shortly.
