More about Online Ads

Well, since my rant about Time magazine, the problem has gone away!

Now there’s a new problem from some outfit called “Ads by MapsScout” and I hate these people with a full, rich hatred. It seems every time I open a new tab I get a pop-up ad in the lower right corner with a timer that starts at 10 seconds and must run down to 0 before an “X” appears that lets me shut the damned ad off.

A pox on these people and any company that employs their services.
