    Where is this advertising you speak of, I don't run ad block or any other blocker other than what Safari or IE 8 and 9 offer.
    Only ads I see are the sponsers up in the top right corner and they've always been there.

    That's the one he ends up blocking with Adblock. If you are signed in on this site, there is only the sponsor ads, but a guest would see a bunch of web based ads.

    Every time you reload a page, a new ad will be blocked. There is only 1 ad on the page if you are signed in at all. I don't have adblock, and there's just the sponsor one in the top right corner.

    The ads are flash based. IOS doesn't support flash, so no ad. Same reason you can't watch a lot of videos.

    This wasn't the case when they first took over. There were several people complaining about the new ads, while logged in, that had nothing to do with sponsors.

    That being said, a sponsor section for sponsors to post about their products is a hell of a lot better than a bunch of flashy ads.

    There are tracking tools besides ads that you don't see. web stats, facebook information, etc. The sheer amount of information I can get off a web page that you visit while staying logged into facebook is staggering! Once I learned about that api, I blocked that shit so fucking fast that my mouse almost flew off my desk. THAT'S why I use ABP. Blocking ads is just a bonus. Keeping my browsing history, likes, friends, wants, and all the rest private is why I use it.

    I wish.
    I use Ghostery here as well. It's rather shocking how you are tracked. Facebook and Amazon standout as the worst offenders for some of the tomfoolery.

    Ghostery is blocking 7 trackers on this page as of this moment:

    1) Amazon Associates
    2) Doubleclick
    3) Google Analytics
    4) OpenX
    5) ScoreCard Research
    6) Twitter
    7) VigLink

    Tech-dudes, any other extensions we should be aware of?
