These adds are ****ing terrible. I mean really? They're the most innane drivel you could possibly find on the internet and this is what you choose to advertise for on a cycling forum?
I can't possibly imagine you get any click-throughs on these things, so all you're achieving is just ****ing people off.

But hell, now I just went and blocked everything out of spite.


:edit:
Even better.

I believe in a clean sport, cycling isn't it. Still entertaining, though.

NoScript effectively removes the ads.

I still try to block the rest but getting rid of the pics helps.

This looks like the source

At the bottom of the page the ads had no relevance. In the middle of the thread makes for unhappy campers

Installed AdBlock for Chrome especially to get rid of this sh!t.
Works perfectly.

Just add:
forum.cyclingnews.com##DIV[class="outbrain_box"]
to your manual filters.

Gone.





Meanwhile I also removed all the other adds. Will uninstall when those horrible adds are removed.

Yep works a treat for firefox. Thanks for the tip. Also agree with the standpoint sometimes the stories were good, but mid thread its just annoying.
