Internet ads are hella lame

Seriously, like when I try to use myspace some frakken ad floats over the view screen and I'm thinking fck off, I don't give a sh1t about your produce. Or even on trek bbs there is an incredible annoying christian bale fighting ad, which is even worse as there is an unwanted punching sound. I feel my rights as a human being are being violated by the intrusiveness of such ads.

I did jury duty recently and I thought, yes I am a citizen not a consumer. It was the same glowy feeling I got when I attended the anarchist bookfair convention.

Yeah, the ad thing is the one thing that will probably eventually push me away from IE onto Firefox, because I think there's a Flash-killer addon you can get. I've searched for a free one for IE but have come up empty so far.

Hella.

I find ads on TrekBBS to be both inspiring and informative.

Flash killer is really easy. Go into Internet Explorer, go into Manage Add-ons, then disable it. When you need it for a news website or such you just go back and re-enable it.

Heh. Guess that was a little too obvious. This is one of those times I feel like a total retard. *clicks Disable button on Abobe Flash* Ah, much better.

I can't believe those "congratulations visitor #1532783, you won!" ads are still around, let alone with audio and on sites like TrekBBS. What is this, fucking 1999?
