It isn't. Apperently part of the justification is that only 20% of non premium users ever even see the existing ads because of adblock.
The problem is that by making the forum itself have a set maximum width, with the rest of the window taken up by the ad and/or black space at the edges, there's no reason other than to see the extra ad or blackspace to have your screen wider than that maximum width. So no one will see the new stuff even if they don't block ads *unless* they view the forum in a wider screen. Which they now have no reason to do unless they just like extra wide borders around the forum.
The good news is that this appears to have been fixed. Yay!
