Instead of insulting users, the ads could say:

This is an advertising supported site. Please consider disabling your ad blocking software on Newgrounds!

Who knew that being polite, straightforward and honest could get you more support than being sarcastic, exaggerating claims and boasting a pompous wit.

I'm loving the fact that I have ads so thoroughly blocked that even the Ad-Blocker images won't show up.

It's not the images themselves I have blocked, it's the entire panels.

How about fixing the little problem where the screen expands beyond the browser area and you have to scroll up and down to see the action?

That's been driving me nuts.

Zoom in on Plumet or Crazy-Ass Renaldo Rangers and you'll see.

You guys may not have take this into consideration, but one of the main reason to use and ad-blocking program is to avoid excess flash animations on a loading web page; not because of the download time increase, or the band with usage, or the plain dislike of ads, but because on old PCs all those flash components make it almost impossible to view pages like Newgrounds.com without insifferable lagging.

This may not be a problem for dual or quad-cores and such, but not everyone has the means to upgrade their PCs in the near future.

Also, what's with the insults?

Yah I have mentioned the lag issue, goldfish just came in and said "If you can't run the little ads how can you run the movies and games." Despite what they may think some of the ads they run can be like a whole mini flash movie and cause lagging and you can't turn the quality down on some of the ads like you can with most of the movies/games.

Now if all the regular ads were like the blocked ads, just pictures and not like full animation like the AQ/Dragon Fable ones, people like us wouldn't have lagging problems and wouldn't have to block them.

Also I recently tried running the ads again but every time I would come back after a few hours firefox would be at 100% cpu usage and I would have to close it.

I agree. My PC is 4 years old now and it really does not handle them very well. Makes watchin Flash at a high framerate nearly impossible. Though I think the lag is a lot worse on DeviantArt than here.

Good thing Ad-Block can block those anti- ad-block banners too. I must be a daft cock. Thanks anyway, newgrounds.

Really, is it that much of a bother to see a small banner image and a few square images once in a while? It's not like they create overlays or popups, they're just images set off to the side. It's cool, either know I'll never fully grasp your concept that companies don't deserve money to stay afloat, I will always think you're a piece of shit.

Oh yeah, YOU pay my bills and taxes, YOU buy me me shirts and shoes for school, YOU put food on the table for me...

go take a hike or something.

I don't care if people use Adblockers or not, I just think it's funny so many of them are taking the mocking ads seriously. As if it's targeting them specifically.

Well, they are.

Meaning they're being offended on a personal level, like the ad is serious.

i was a little frreaked out about how you don't have to click on icons to open flashes anymore

cuz i thought icons would be obsolete and i like going to the iconhelpers page

but i realized that at the same time, since the flash wont have to open in a new window anymore, that means that if i accidently scrole down, my computer won't freeze anymore! idk why, but for some reason my computer would freeze if i scroled by accident...but....yay! i love you tomfulp!

Heh, people are coming to a site known for it's open content policies, and then crying about "Insulting Ads" mocking them for using bandwidth and going out of their way to avoid contributing. ;? Someone please explain this logic to me. ;P

i think it would be better if you switch the related/recommend movie/games column with the column that has the Author and file information.

Well whatever just happened, I'm no longer getting the ads, even though I always had Newgrounds in my exceptions list.
