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.
With AdBlock and my screen zoomed out to cover the monitor I only see the threads/discussions.
Actually I started a thread similar to this yesterday, thanking everyone who told me to download an ad-blocker. Do it my friend, you will thank us!!!
