Thanks for all the feedback. I have made some changes, including removal of some ad units, hiding the new Google+ and Facebook plugin from the bottom of the resources, rearranging the widgets on the rightbar etc.
Let me know if you feel more comfortable now.
One of the reasons to hide the leftbar is, to make our site more search engine friendly. Search engines look at the pages from top to bottom from an HTML perspective. When you look at the page, it will look like left, middle and right. But when search engines look at the source html, the left, middle and right comes in the sequential order. This means, search engines see the leftbar before the content. There is a big chance that the search engines may not fully cover the content and get distracted with scripts and links in the leftbar. So, our aim is to present the content first and that is what I am trying to achieve by removing leftbar.
We still have a lot of stuff on the top menus that could distract search engines. In the coming few days, I would try to reduce the menu items and see if that helps.
I am eager to hear your feedback.
