Do I really have to tolerate the commercials that have been inserted onto my desk top here on LJ or is there a way for me to eliminate them.

If they were only on the borders it would be of minimal irritation but inserted right into the middle of a thread I find intolerable.

Dusty, I use the Chrome browser and have enabled AdBlock. Now I’m living an ad-free lifestyle – nothing around the borders, nothing within the threads, nothing.

I’m on a Mac Pro using Safari.
AdBlock is fantastic.

I am leary of AdBlocks because of a number of posts on the FireFox help page. In FireFox, I did a search and found a significant number of complaints that AdBlocks does not work well with FireFox.

What’s the harm in trying it?
You can always remove it.
You can also dump firefox and use Chrome

I never heard of it. I use Chrome and I just added AdBlock. Then I went back to this post and the ads that were in the middle were GONE!! This is awesome!!

Thanks
