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.

How about those annoying flash ads that stretch over the content without an exit button even covering the text? It normally happens when you accidentally hover the mouse over the ad. I'd put these in the same category as those annoying hidden audio ads.
