Seriously, no Phoronix G+ page/community?
Disclaimer: it could just be me.
I use AdBlock and Ghostery however, I do unblock those news/tech sites that I frequent regularly if I don't own a subscription. While I loath Internet advertising I'm not naive enough to think I can wholesale block it everywhere and not have an impact to those sites I'm accessing. I read Phoronix without a premium membership and if I want to keep it that way I let the adverts through. I do agree with the suggestion that if you detect an adblock or the like, have a popup reminding those viewers to unblock the site. I use multiple browsers across multiple machines across multiple OS installs so I forget to whitelist the site sometimes.
I'd subscribe again, but last I've heard the you-have-to-come-to-the-forums-every-day bug still isn't fixed
Also the H rocked, very sad to see them leave.
I really don't wanna sound like I'm telling you how to make money, Michael, but I believe PTS consulting and custom development, especially for the HPC and big data Linux industries, could be a good revenue stream, with Phoronix mostly a place where you publicize the consulting biz.
In that regard, you'd want the articles to focus less on gaming and more on server speed, etc. In any case, a lot of the folks playing games today will be running IT teams tomorrow.
Just my two cents. All the best!

radeonhd.orgthere's an abundance of people using AdBlock, etc, that do much damage to the publisher.
pts-desktop-live.com which redirects to the previous address
it's a waste to turn off the adblock, all the money from ads/stats are going to be spent on phoro* domains.
Add Flattr buttons. I'm not interested in watching any ads, unless they are in some way nicely integrated with the website, but I really frequently click Flattr buttons on any content that I like.
