Microsoft Flash Ads on Slashdot.

In case you haven't noticed Slashdot is now running shitty Microsoft ads at the top of the page. "Nothing odd, they do that all the time," you may say.In case you haven't noticed Slashdot is now running shitty Microsoft ads at the top of the page.

Not so, my good Slashdotter, these new ads are, wait for it, Flash. That's right, no blocking the images anymore. What a shaft. We'll get around this too. i just find it very interesting that Slashdot (linux cheerleader), is running non-mozilla-crushable ads. Fucking strange. Yes, yes, i know there's ways around, i just find it interesting. Way to go, Rob.

What you say isn't possible. I specifically remember they said they wouldn't run Flash ads. Therefore, it's not happening.

But if you ever do see a flash ad (I know you won't see one on slashdot) then there's always that click-to-play plugin. That turns off flash everywhere, and you'll never miss it.
