TRYING to be ok here without using Adblock
 
... but it's SOOOO hard. :(

I'm using Firefox 4 Beta 6 so I can't use Adblock anyway, but man, the ads here really slow down the experience here. I have to re-load pages a lot, as loading often gets hung up on one of the ads.

Use Chrome and you won't have to worry about slowdowns :bleh:

Yea some of the ad servers are slow. It's weird.

Some ad from kontera.com is really slowing things down tonight.

I just use NoScript - it allows the non-obnoxious ads while blocking any scripted nonsense. Unfortunately the latter seems to be all NVNews has. :(

I'm working on getting some of the ads replaced with AIB/IHV ads that will be a little more tolerable and click-worthy. :)

I use noscript and adblock. The machines at school don't have it, and it is really really bad without it. sorry :(

I *just* had that happen. If these don't disappear then I can guarantee I'll probably not stay around long.

I'd much rather pay a monthly fee than have to deal with ads like that.

I would be ALL about that. help MikeC with finances for the site, and enjoy an ad-free browsing situation. :) :thumbsup:
