Apart from a few greenlisted sites I almost never browse without adblock, so maybe I'm just spoilt.  But..

This is pretty extreme.

It's just punishing people who don't adblock, then they moan and wonder why people install adblock....  did it occur to them it is them ramming ad's at people like that.

Yeah I know that feeling, was up in the Waikato a few weeks ago....do the Waikato Times editors have spell check turned off or something?  Possibly the most spelling errors I've ever seen in a paper that wasn't a community times anywhere in NZ

It's to punish those of you with amazingly wide screens. No sympathy :-P
