Am I the only one reduced to a state of nausea by the Intel adverts appearing on SO? Someone should tell them that "Developer Rock Star" is not a term of approbation. Perhaps Jeff & Co could set up a little consultancy on how to appeal to real developers.

Can't we all just unite on the "Case of the Mondays?" ad first??? –  Tim Post Jul 29 '10 at 11:38
    
Get rid of the sexist/entomonist ad first! Down with sexism! Down with entomonism! –  XMLbog Jul 29 '10 at 11:44
    
Back when SO was having serious slowness issues due to the ads, I added ads.stackoverflow.com to my hosts file and made it point to some arbitrary location. I've never looked back :-P (sorry, Jeff!) –  Andy E Jul 29 '10 at 12:48

I haven't had that problem in at least two years. That's when I started using the Firefox plugin Adblock plus. Pages load so much faster and spam free.

I too use adblock, but the damn things have started appearing again! I must have changed something without noticing it, I suppose. –  nb69307 Jul 29 '10 at 11:51
    
Upon installation (or through adblock config) you may subscribe to an ever updating list. I use EasyListUSA I think. –  Brad Hein Jul 29 '10 at 12:03
    
yes, I also use Adblock Plus, and it works great, I have yet to see a graphic ad on any of the Trilogy sites - Using EasyListUSA...be sure to update your subscriptions regularly –  studiohack Jul 29 '10 at 12:58
