Internet & Networking We're still in the slow news period, so let's talk about something we discussed before: blocking advertisements on websites.

The following set of screenshots should pretty much explain why.

in text ads suck

the only ads that annoy me are the ones that CONTINUOUSLY pop over text as i read, i mouse over text as i read. and sites with in-text ads are impossible to use. for example vibrant media, can't use the site. have to block vibrantmedia.
