While I was googling to see if anyone else was disturbed by this, I came across this lovely rant:
excerpt from scottdstrader.com/blog/: It's rant time again
a.) Frenzied pressings of "skip this ad".
b.) Frenzied pressings of "stop".
c.) Opening the page in a tab and going to another tab until the ridiculous reloading, redirecting ads finally finish
d.) Closing the page forever, never to return.
I realize that advertising is a necessary evil. After all, there is not free lunch. But get real!!!
