My brain parses "text in a box on the right" as "ad" and ignores it. I literally
spent minutes reading this page before even realizing there is content on the
right even though I had looked at a previous version.

this behavior of my brain, but I wanted to mention it in case I am not the only

I think some combination of: non-white background in right sidebar, no shadows
around boxes, and only horizontal borders in sidebar might help to make the
sidebar parse less like ads and more like a sidebar
