Not at all. Where the adsense banner is on your site (e.g. in a page header/board footer/whatever), you don't always show the ads; you can show trivia related to the topic of your board (i have rock music trivia) or advice on how to use the board's features, or banners for other advertisers.
I don't think any new forum should use this, this is again forcefully making them read, isn't it?
