If the ad wasn't so trashy it would not have been a problem.

Oh well, it just came back so the Cafe wins. Wait wouldn't I have to click the ad for them to win?

I think it has something to do with users not having add blockers turned on...I'm not totally sure though. I was just being a goof mostly. :-D

No. The Cafe is paid by views, not clicks.

Sorry it caused you so many problems. One thing you can do is report ads you have a problem with HERE.

Correct. If the ads are blocked (as in not showing up), the site doesn't get paid, and if the site doesn't get paid, the site closes (goes bankrupt). That goes for all free internet sites. Makes sense and is quite easy to understand, so people still using Adblockers makes no sense at all. Especially when the site(s) go well out of their way to ensure there's nothing wrong with the ads (like the Cafes and many other sites do).

And as to the silly little whine-fest over the particular ad mentioned (seriously? :-t ), I've seen that exact same ad on over a dozen websites. I think there's even a thread around here about seeing that ad on other websites (I'll see if I can find it). So turning the personal sensitivity meter down on what bugs you would be the way to go, as those ads are super common on the internet.
