It was that way for me before I got a lifetime membership. A site like this costs money to run and the ads help pay those costs. I don't remember if all paid membership levels get ad free access, but a lifetime membership does.
A forum I used to be on relied solely on donations to defer the costs. After a while, I and a hand full of others were the only ones donating. The few of us could not afford to keep donating enough to keep it going and the forum eventually folded. I was donating $25 - $50 several times a year and so was one other person. The rest couldn't afford nearly that much. The forum owner had to pay out of his own pocket more and more often and just could not afford to keep the forum going.
From my perspective, a one time $40 lifetime membership to not only support the forum in general, but to also view it ad free is a terrific bargain!
