    the entire background was a paradigm speaker ad a little while ago, distracting and annoying.

    I run adblock, but since that wasnt a popup or anything it was the entire background of the screen it would appear a run around for them

    I know. Damn. It sucks SO MUCH that completely unused space on the page is leveraged to generate revenue to run this free service.

    MY LIFE IS SO HARD.

    P.S. why is this Bike Magazine's fault?

    Just assumed this was a bm change as I'd never seen it before. I've no issues with revenue generation. It was in addition to the banner ad

    I saw the giant page-background ad when I used Firefox for a bit on a crappy computer at work that doesn't like Chrome for some reason. Then I went home and fired up Chrome + ABP and all was well.

    That's almost as ridiculous as an RC editorial.


    Wait, wrong magazine.
