    Why do people use adblocks?

    Because of this crap.
    I don't want to even hear about "turn off your adblocks, this is how we pay the bills".

    This is WHY people put adblock!

    No more content, just full page ads. Isn't that what you want?
    Rigid SS 29er
    SS 29+
    Fat Lefty
    SS cyclocross
    Full Sus 29er (Yuck)

    Stop asking how much it weighs and just go ride it.

    The issue with that particular ad is that the "X" button to close the ad doesn't close the ad, it redirects you to Zyn's website.

    Some sensibility in screening the ads for BS like this would be more than welcome.

    Well, when the ad is more useful than the content, that's the problem.
    It is the Right of the People to Alter or to Abolish It.

    I would not blocks ads if 100% of them were

    NOT ANIMATED

    ------------------------------

    the animation if friggin distracting. and everyone does it. hence, blocked.

    if they were not animated and just static, they would not bother me and in fact
    might interest me...but anything moving on screen that I did not choose to move or click, NOPE.
