Cry me a river. Too bad for advertisers, they poisoned the well with spyware, viruses, popups, etc. long ago. Hey, I don't mind the ads that come up in-frame and don't take a noticeable amount of time to load. But any ads that take a while to come up, I block the whole domain of the ad source, that way they don't slow me down in the future no matter what sites I go to. So if they can keep their servers fast, they don't get blocked.
