Sorry about misspelling Ad as Add so many times. I was a bit aggravated and in a hurry posting my rant. I have AdBlock on several other browsers and machines, but the one I'm on now is a company box and I don't use it for as much random surfing as my home box. That said, I've installed AdBlock now and all is well again, though I'm still a little unhappy about having to do this to continue to use Slashdot in a a sane manner. It reminds me of having to specifically choose classic mode when they changed the Mod system. Note, there was a substantial decline in the quality of posts after that change. When you decide the user experience is less important than the Ad revenue it can only lead to decline. Slashdot use to be great because its text dense comment system was fast and you didn't have to have 10Mb download speed. Please don't become like every other overly ad crowded bullshit site out there. Please let us have one forum that reminds of us of some of the simpler and better times on the internet.
