THAT SAMSUNG BANNER AD IS DRIVING ME CRAZY

Jeebus H. Criminy. It's driving me nuts. That grey banner ad at the top--
Just as you're about to click on your profile page, ZAP. The banner appears out of nowhere, and your click lands on that-- whisking you away to an annoying Facebook ad.
I've already accidentally clicked on the stupid thing 3 times. (I know some smarmy marketing guys are high fiving themselves as they read this rant). Yeah, victory. You putzes.
I know those clicks are paying your bills, Chow dot com. But it's at the price of my sanity. I need you to stop it. Now.
The other night after I read Charles Yu's post on Char Siu in Hong Kong I got a banner ad for an Asian dating service, which I thought was pretty awesome.
I agree w you Mr Taster and I'm sure it's no coincidence that the button to click to the Samsung ad is directly above the profile name.
I installed adblock on my macbook but I'm going to have to do so on my ipad too.
Wow, I didn't even notice it until you mentioned it. The strawberry slushie margarita thing on the right is what catches my eye every time.
