Wow, the Globe really doesn't get it does it?
Of course the above wasn't an article but a teaser to get as many clicks as possible - I hate that and usually don't proceed. But in this case I was curious so I turned off Adblock on my browser (Firefox) to check the article. And what happened when I clicked on each picture? Yep, a pop-up ad came out with every click on the page.
Thank goodness for Adblock-plus. I'd like to be able to have it off when I come to Boston.com but it's too annoying to nor have it. Other successful web sites don't allow annoying ads and I have it turned off for those.
