The New York Times on Annoying Ads  

The New York Times reported today on the increasing popularity of blockers for pop-up ads. They describe pop-up ads as being "among the most intrusive, and to many people, the most obnoxious features on the Internet." Lately, when Standard Deviance has clicked on a New York Times article to read, an entire page ad has appeared. The reader is then redirected to the article after a short period. Pop-up ads can be closed with a click of the mouse, but this full page ad must be endured until you are redirected to the article. This seems much more "obnoxious" than a pop up ad. Glass houses, people.
