    Ads are a necessary evil for websites. It's not bush league at all. I agree the integration of ads into the website could probably be a bit more optimal. The good news is that's something that can be adjusted.

    I just went on UGA's website and counted 10 ads on the home page. Everyone had ad space on their web pages it's a form of revenue that probably negates the cost of running the site.

    I don't mind ads. I do mind when they risk crashing the browser because of all the scripts and animations and vidoes, or worse, when they create a security risk.

    I'm pretty much an unapologetic adblock user until Google fixes this crap.

    I like the new content that GSeagles has been adding, BTW. I'm not crazy about the format. I half expect to scroll to the bottom and see "You won't believe why Hollywood won't cast Angelina Aniston anymore".
    Hey, Tyson! Change the culture back!

    If you think TK is the reason we don't have better non-conference football schedules, see this post.

    I just went through completely re-designing my site (over 1000 pages) for RWD (responsive web design), and one has to make compromises. One adjustment is to narrow the "maxwidth" (the setting for maximum displayed width) so it is not too wide on large monitors. They can adjust this with one line of code.

    Perhaps they will. It depends on whether their designers decide the page looks too weird (too wide) on large monitors.

    Exactly. That's why we will get free videos.
