I don't see any of that crap, but to be fair I'm running Adblock Plus, Adblock Plus Element Hiding Helper, and NoScript. I see no ads toward the top or along the right side. Ah... the Web as it was meant to be, without distractions. Gotta love Adblock and NoScript.

I'm surprised nobody has crapped their pants yet and gone on about how you're so "selfish" for using ad-blockers.

Btw, I use all the same stuff.. Love not being constantly spammed with that garbage.

Me too... I was fully expecting it, as well as being down-modded to oblivion. I bet they'll eventually arrive, though. Topics like these, about advertising and ad blocking, never fail to attract people who are for whatever reason completely against the concept of blocking nuisances including advertisements.

Same here - with the additional mixins of Ghostery to cut down on being tracked, and Certificate Patrol to keep and eye out for "funky stuff".

Ah yes, and DnsCrypt - I'm not entirely sure if getting DNS from a for-profit .us company is better than the somewhat hypothetical risk of getting DNS poisoned/snooped, though ;)

Well, with OpenDNS your DNS-packets do travel further, over more networks. So the chance of poisoning/spoofing increases. DNSCrypt does solve that.

Maybe you are not aware, but there is also DNSSEC.

DNSSEC is the only solution in the long run.

You should also look at DANE.
