Off topic I know, but I really hate those stupid MS ads, especially on a supposed pro-linux site.
Well, I found a way of defeating them and not having to use an ad blocker to do it. And there is some icing too, because my way also costs Newsforge bandwidth as punishment.
All you have to do is when you open a page, hit the refresh button until you cycle the MS ads and their replaced with a pro-Linux ad instead. ATM, MS's ads occupy the first two spots in the stack, and HP occupies the third spot.
So as it stands, in order for me to make Newsforge's pages readable, it'll cost them three times the bandwidth as I have to load their page three times.
