Ziv - The New York Times and Amazon ads are the latest culprits. Long running scripts? And HELL NO I won't pay your request for blackmail. Why don't you screen ads for how the impact website functionality?

I understand that SA needs ads to pay the bills, but moderation is the key. When the ads become so intrusive as to gum up the works for the viewer (and they have on SA), you are defeating your own goal. Most SA readers, including me, will not pay $10/month. We will simply go elsewhere.

Ziv: I echo some of the comments about.  I don't mind ad content and it's reasonable for sites with free-content to have said ads.  However, there's something else going on with your ads that really slows down your site to a crawl, and I'm betting you know what the culprit is (hint: never ending page reloads and active-ad content (instead of simple static ads)).  Your driving your readers away -which is contradictory to the reasons why advertisers would choose SA in the first place.
