I've got to mention about how this topic has been such a great debate.
So here's a few of my thoughts on the commentary so far...

In reality the advertising revenue is required, those that have suggested not visiting if ads are enforced I think should do just that, not visit. This site is a community, and you simply are not playing your part in it. Advertising is the alternative to subscription and vice versa.
If you can't handle the ads that fund the site or shell out a subscription fee, what exactly can you do to help maintain the community?

The ads should be enforced, provided they are not increased.
They don't paticularly affect load speads etc. anyway.

Those who can't stand them have the subscription option.
