I get nothing as well.

This comes up all the time. And everyone comes up with a million ways to stop ads. (Which I'm sure are all effective).

Just use firefox and an adblocking hosts file such as this:

Install the Flashblock plugin if you want (which I do) or any of the gazillion ad blocker suggestions that have been mentioned here a million times.

If you still have problems run SpyBot or AdAware. And keep complaining to Blue if you have to (if you're on a corporate network and can't change anything) as he has obviously been more than willing to remove offensive and/or obnoxious and irritating ads for the past several years. Just be nice about it, I'm sure he'll accomodate you.
