However, I am not really interested in Microsoft's products, and their flashing1 things about their latest, most wonderful offers are annoying me.
Using the "mute" feature of the Google ads, I reported them as "not interested", but it has no effect.
Can I somehow turn them off, but only them, without setting my adblocker? Your other offers (jobs, HNQ, etc) are to me okay.
Maybe it would require some Google settings?
P.s. If at least they would be static images... or they wouldn't do it so agressively... then this post hadn't been ever created.
1Actually, not the ads are flashing, but they are loaded dynamically by some JS (coming probably from Google). This delayed appearance looks like an animation. The images are static.
2Update: My adblocker plugin became somehow... ancient. After a refresh, all problem solved.
