I decided to go back to where I used to have property on the mainland to see what changes had taken place now that ad farms are banned. The ride down the Linden Road was much more attractive than it used to be. There are still ads - which was to be expected, but for the most part they aren't as ugly or obnoxious as they used to be.
Of course there are always going to be exceptions - and things won't be perfect right away. This one is over 30 m tall - has ads that change every few seconds - lots of naked women and, as you can see, gaming. The top one is fixed though and gives the owner's political views. :)
