Why not provide a variety of options, have a default and let each member choose. You hate emailing members, I'd rather receive an email once a week with an ad at the top providing each of the home page threads. I'd prefer ad free when I'm on the site viewing threads. Others prefer no emails, and are okay with ads on the site.
To each their own. bing!
