Reg in flash ad clampdown

Jeffrey J Holt wholeheartedly approves of our stand against irritating ads:

Glad to hear you resisted temptation! I HATE animated ads! I have animations turned off in my browser, but that only protects me from animated gifs. I don't go to CNET as much any more, those ads really annoy me to the point that when I do, I have another window ready that I grab and drag over on top of the ad. I can usually cover the ad before anything starts being displayed in it! I don't know how these sites expect people to concentrate on reading something with piles of flashing and/or moving crap all over the screen.

I think the web may be going to hell in a handbasket - a few times lately I've noticed by machine cranking up to 100% CPU utilization continuously with some web pages up - probably some out of control applet in a loop or something.

Greg Clarke, on the other hand, reckons he knows what we're up to:

You know this story sort of smacks of the bitching between the Mail and the Express [UK daily national newspapers] at the moment, does this mean the Reg is going to start offering cash to ISPs to block CNET?? ;-)

You cheeky monkey. Have a poke at the opposition? Us? Heaven forbid...
