i disagree with that rule; it implies that just because someone mentions ad-blocking, or uses ad-blocking, that all
ads (thus one ones here) are blocked. which is not the case; typically you block only the annoying ads. the ones on tr don't seem so bad compared to other ads, or other forms or advertising (stupid in-text nonsense).
also, "philosophical discussions" are still ok. if interpreted literally, Imperor is fine since there were no "links, hints, recommendations or suggestions" being made, just a statement.
I don't see their ads, I refuse to install software I never need.
that's my position on flash. websites that use it exclusively are not websites i care to go to, and flash advertising is annoying as hell! i can live without youtube videos as well.
