OSNews isn't bad on the ads and its owners have apologized.

I've seen some sites which are crippled and totally useless.

Personally, I like `mild` product placement. Not the reach out and grab you by the cojones and screw your computer system type.

I boil this down to piss-poor-planning on the content/ad ratio. Some dip-slip admins forget there is a tolerance level in their audience for sheer and utter stupidity by marketers.
