    Firefox + Adblock = bliss

    Unless you browse from a cell phone, then the ads suck to say the least.

    But they're cooking up some stratics plus scheme as we speak and hopefully it won't be used to fraud this time around. (like overbilling, continuing to bill even after people removed plus and continuing to bill long after plus was discontinued)

    Just to add, That was due to the company who ran Stratics Plus, Not Stratics itself. :)

    But yes, Stratics Plus is being worked on again.

    I'm glad to hear a Stratics Plus is being set up. The ads are getting very tiresome. I won't play any of them after putting up with the endless repeats of them. The Conan one with the three large words, Courage, Carnage & Cleavage is particulaly irritating. Might not be if I was several decades younger, or far enough along in my second childhood to be in my second puberty of course. <g>

    Chrome has an ad-block extension as well and is extremely fast.

    For sites that I frequent with good security records, I usually permit ads unless they are obnoxious like: stratics.

    Ads are a significant malware vector so its best to block them by default.

    The odd part is that I judge stratics has a decent demographic for context derived, targeted advertising but they instead run the lowest common denominator banners in a disrespectfully blaring presentation.
