Internet & Networking We're still in the slow news period, so let's talk about something we discussed before: blocking advertisements on websites. Up until, well, today, I didn't block ads - not because of some ethical objection or whatever, but simply because I couldn't be bothered to setup AdBlock. Today, after taking a closer look at some of the websites I frequent, I decided to take the plunge and install AdBlock on all my machines. The following set of screenshots should pretty much explain why.

Because on this very site on this very forums their an ad that takes up half the page everytime I mistakenly roll over it. I think you need a mirror. At least Ars ads are out of the way and they have rules about how ads behave on their site. Fix you shit first then talk shit about other sites.
