During the recent read-only mode, ads were shown to me, because I was no longer a high-rep user, but a random surfer from the internet.

Does giving an ad a "Thumbs down", which gives a dialog box saying it won't be shown again, actually have any effect? I assume that if Stack Exchange is in read-only mode, then it can't, but that'd mean the dialog box was incorrect.

Adzerk (our ad server) uses cookies to keep track of the down voted ads, which will persist (with all the usual cookie related caveats).
