    For my site, if you are a non-member you only see image thumbnails, and you get an ad with EVERY post. Interestingly, non-members pay for more of the site hosting than members, and I've got over 20,000 members.

    People don't understand how expensive it can be to host a forum web site, particularly if you allow large images. And of course, that assumes that your time as an admin is free :) If you were trying to make money you'd be better off flipping burgers at McD's.
