Or you could, you know, uncheck the box that says "allow non-intrusive ads". I dunno if they still do this, but AdBlock Plus went out of its way to point this out on initial setup last couple times I installed it.

Which is all it is. To be fair, I never have an issue with google's ads. They load promptly, they're small in size (usually a few hundred K at most), they never have fucking video or volume 17000 noise, and they never fucking hang a website like most other ad providers do. (Google analytics, on the other hand...)

I understand what they're doing with the "Allow non-intrusive ads" option, and quite frankly I support it. It's really about the only way I can see that ad providers, and the fucking morons who design their ads, will MAYBE figure out "hey, we need to stop building these really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really fucking annoying ads, or else nobody is ever going to see them anymore."

God, I fondly remember the days of the internet before the fucking cuntsack marketoids got involved.

{sarcasm| I just can't wait for my xbone-eighty to get here so I can start interacting with ads and share them with my friends!!!!! {/sarcasm}

Fuck you and die, Xbox.
