That is technically possible to make the ad div disappear with a button
I played around with putting the ads column into the overall content div
and floating it to the right. This would make the text wrap under the
ads but it caused tons of other bugs to creep in with other divs inside
the content div (like the warnings and code listings) and required
workarounds that would make it more complicated than it needs to be.
Especially considering the background banners on the content and ads
column have to line up perfectly.
If all browsers rendered css the same it would be really easy to do.
Is having the dead space that big of a deal? I *could* work on it and
see if I can come up with something better but it would require a lot of
time so I would like to push this off to a future update if possible.
The current website has the same issue of dead space under the ads by
the way. :/
