That’s 794 ads being blocked, resulting in 796 console warnings and 385 console alerts. My page froze for three minutes while it was counting up. The last time I stopped adblocking (out of guilt) every fifth new link I clicked got hijacked and redirected me to a (potentially) malicious site. I like my GMG hate reads as much as the next QA, but I’m not giving my computer the clap to get to them.

To be fair, GMG is not always serving 700+ ads on a single page, a typical page holds between 30-40 (still outrageous!), but some of the ads appear to try to load up to 100 times each when they fail. No wonder they can’t sell this hunk of scrap off.
