My Message to the SF Gate Staff

Hi SFGate Staff,

Happy Holidays!

I just wanted to let you know that I find your expandable Ads annoying and have blocked a whole bunch of your ads using a firefox plugin. First was the Sweeney Todd thing that took over a huge amount of the page, then I blocked some World Market thing too. Well, I actually blocked anything originating from the same domains as those Ads.

I know these Ads bring in a lot of revenue, but they detract from my experience on SFGate.

I wish you all well, enjoy the holidays.


Am I a hypocrite? I don't think so. I have never been in favor of expandable ads on any site, ever. I imagine most of the SF Gate staff don't like them either.
