    MSNBC took my advice! :eek:

    I noticed I can actually see a lot of their ads now, they have gone and switched out a lot of their flash ads for simple graphics. I sent them an email recommending that a few months ago and look! They did it! Who says MSNBC doesn't listen to people? :razz:

    I have noticed I cannot see any ads ever, anywhere.

    I am guessing you have all scripts blocked. I unblocked USMB and Google, so I see ads that don't use offsite scripts or flash.

    I merely use the AdBlockPlus add-on for FF and am subscribed to the EasyList USA filter on it.

    Never seen any ads anywhere, of any type, since. And really like it that way. It's also a great tool for blocking unwanted images individually, like avatars and massive hotlinked images here and there.

    MSMBC has never taken my advice.

    I suggested Chris Mathews nude jelly wrestle O'Reilly in a cross network telecast.

    Fox and O'Reilly agreed.
