I see that I can disable advertising now. Normally, I wouldn't really care as Slashdot earns money through advertising and the Advertising is nowhwere nearly as bad as at most other sites. However, yesterday I was confronted with advertising from Scientology. I was extremely offended. I know that it is free speech and all that, but really, what the hell got into the advertiser's minds when they decided that that particular organisation, on a technology site, was a good idea. Or was it just the stuff that got into the advertiser's pockets?
In any case, advertising is now disabled.
