Is anyone else being barraged by Mormon.org ads on YouTube?

    This is getting ridiculous. I would have thought they'd be out of money after the Romney campaign. Also, as a Catholic I demand that we start advertising, we're losing the marketing war.

    I fucking hate Mormons. Non-caffeine or alcohol drinking weirdos, the whole lot.

    I haven't seen an ad on YT since it started carrying ads.

    Seriously, why the fuck do people not use adblockers???? Ads are a major source of vulnerabilities on the web and blocking them keeps your computer safe, it reduces behavioral targeting and tracking and also massively reduces your bandwidth consumption.

    Install AdBlock and Ghostery and be done with it.

    Ads on YT = giant waste of time and bandwidth (especially on mobile).

    Thanks for the tip; I had to switch to Firefox to do it, as I was using Chrome.

    Great! Install these:

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ghostery/ (no more tracking of your browsing! in wizard, set up auto update so it's always downloading updates on what to block)

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/ (and go into its preferences and turn on blocking of all sites, including "text or non-intrusive" ones. turn it all off)

    With ad & tracking blocking, pages load up 100% faster since there's no bandwidth and CPU being wasted on downloading and displaying shit you don't want and there's no tracking bugs being loaded! (on some sites, ads/tracking is over 60% of page's content!) All these evil tracking companies can go fuck themselves.

    Thanks, man. I can't believe how much faster this makes Amazon run, I wonder how much they were tracking? I wish I'd never started using Chrome, now.

    You need to turn off incognito browsing. Then you'll get bombarded with momonmom.org.

    Or maybe spend more time on the food networks website. Then you'll get ads for omnomnom.com.
