I have noticed lately that the front page Ad bar has been launching half page flashing ads for Coke, profile tatoos and avatar dresses. Is this going to be the norm for now on? They're pretty obnoxios. I usually jump on the site at work in a small window and an add will cover the entire window.I understand that Ads are a part of doing business but these in particular are eye sores and really bring down the classy look of the site. Thoughts?

if you use firefox theirs an add-on called ad-block plus, it pretty much does as it says and blocks all ads...i've been using it for sometime now and it helps web pages load faster aswell.

My concerns are less about me seeing ads and more about how the page looks to the general population. It could be a turn-off to newcomers.

It is a new company that we thought we would run an experiment with. I can tell you that it's only a test and that I'm not impressed so far. Using ad blocker only serves to kill the site since it survives off those ads. kthxbai

I use adblock to block sigs and avs I don't like, ads don't really bother me.

If its not adsense, it's not worth advertising js.
