I read PoliticsNJ pretty much every day, even though it sometimes has some of the most annoying advertisements on the planet.
First there's a banner ad for Commerce Bank that for some unknown reason uses Java (and keeps the page from loading as fast as normal websites) despite being just a plain old still photo... but much worse are those full page splash ads that we've been bombarded with this week.
Aside from being a barrier between me and the content I want to read, is PoliticsNJ really the place for these ads? Is there anyone who reads PoliticsNJ who is going to be influenced by the back and forth splash-page ads arms-race? If you're already reading PoliticsNJ... you've probably already got a pretty solid opinion on these issues anyway... right?
