Sidebar on every page OK for seo?

Quick question. I've tried to find a concrete answer (well, opinion I guess..) but, would putting the sidebar on EVERY page, including thread_view, with the same content on each, be bad for SEO considering some sort of noise ratio factor?

Or, is this one of those questions where its just personal preference, because the opinions are all over the place?

:p

Thanks for any insight.

I'd call this personal preference since even large sites that rank very good, have sidebars on all pages (and some none at all). I myself, typically prefer to only see them on the forum index though and not on every page.
