WHAT'S WITH THE FREAKING VIDEO ADS! I AM GOING TO STOP COMING HERE NO MATTER HOW FUNNY IT IS.

Then don't roll~over or click them. There's no auto~play video ads on this website.

Christian... Larry specifically stated "video" ads. Thus, obviously he has no problem with the other ads. Another factor is Adblock (Plus) only works on Firefox. Maybe he's not using Firefox or prefers not to when navigating DYAC.

Brian Joslyn Adblock Plus is available for Chrome (I'm using it right now).
I've never seen a video ad on this site with ABP. I recommend it to everyone

Brian, before getting all "Hey, I'm smarter than you!" why don't you take a look at the Chrome apps. There IS AdBlock for Chrome. I'm using Chrome right now, and hey, guess what, I have AdBlock running.
Maybe do a bit of research before you start telling people that they're wrong.

Good rebuttal there, Brian. Considering I was commenting on the fact that you said, and I quote, "Chrome doesn't offer any such thing... it's offered for use on Firefox" your response to me means absolutely nothing. AdBlock Plus IS available for Chrome, even though you sit there and say it is not.
Now, would you like to respond to what I actually said to you, and not come up with some garbage about how it is junk, which has nothing to do with what I said to you?

Boyd, Brian just doesn't understand. And his comment of "if you have a problem with ads online then you shouldn't be online" is a garbage argument. It's one where the person has absolutely nothing of relevance to say, so they say something that makes themselves feel better.
I'm all for no ads online. I don't need to see ads online. I will never see any ad online that will make me want to buy something. I know all I need to know by my own research. No ad will push me in one direction or another.

Aww, you're kinda touchy, aren't you? And no, you did NOT respond to my "meaningless nonsense." You mentioned me in your post, but then responded about something completely different. I called you out about Adblock Plus being available for Chrome. Your response to me wasn't even close to mentioning anything about it being available for Chrome.
Again, next time you want to tell someone that something is or is not a certain way, you should research before saying anything. Don't want to look like an idiot now, do you?

Ok, last time I try to explain this to you. I said NOTHING about ads. Not a thing. I mentioned one thing, that Adblock is available for Chrome, countering what you said, that it was NOT available for Chrome. When you responded to me, you didn't say, "Yes, you were right" or "No, you're wrong," you started in about how it is junk. I never said anything about whether it was junk or not. I never said anything about if ads should be blocked or not. I just said, "You're wrong, it is available on Chrome." Seriously, look back up, and see what I said, then look at what you said! You didn't say anything back to me about it being available, not until a few comments later!
Wow man, I think I'm done with you. You really do NOT understand.
September 15, 2012 at 2:08 am
You need explain ANYTHING to me. I need not read back. You didn't need to specifically mention ads, you implied them by mentioning AB(P). I know I stated it's junk, because it is... and it's a valid factor in such a discussion as this.
The fact remains... I DO understand.
September 15, 2012 at 2:17 am
Understandable Boyd... and I thank you for having the respect to not only state but imply more specifically that it's time for this to end. However, there's technically no debate. I realize that advertising is simply part of life. It's everywhere. As far as online advertising, I know PLENTY about how it works and don't appreciate my true and factual knowledge, although stated in my own words, being disrespected (especially with harassment as a result).
I've not done nor said anything wrong... thus, it's not my responsibility to cease this nonsense. That is, despite the fact that I have PLENTY better (and more important) things to do.
September 15, 2012 at 2:28 am
So now you've harassed me again, Boyd. If only you were right on ANY of the disrespectful assumptions you made. Despite the fact that it's none of your business what all I have to do, I will say that one thing just happens to involve business.

Can't we all get along?
September 15, 2012 at 1:33 am
It sure would be nice, Melissa!
September 15, 2012 at 1:50 am
I don't think so, Melissa. Would be a good thing, but no, I don't think so.

How the hell is a website supposed to pay for expenses on a not-for-profit website if they don't have ads. I. - Ad-Block Plus, Peerblock, AVG Safe Search with Link Scanner, and more can block it, for example, I am on here and all I see is what I type and above, I don't even have to see that stupid Justin Bieber sidebar thing with the hidden link that extends three inches to the left of it.
