Regarding Those Pesky Hover Ads

Phoronix

Over the past few days you may have noticed some rather pesky Adobe ads that keep "hovering" over the main portion of the Phoronix web-page and are impairing the reading of the site's content. We hate these ads just as much as you do! They will be removed.

Upon first discovering these intrusive ads, IDG TechNetwork, the company behind the advertising on Phoronix.com, was contacted and it was requested these ads to be removed. Usually they have not had any problems removing any ads we object to in the past, but for whatever reason they are having problems with this issue and "finding" the ads. Several emails later, still nothing. Hopefully it will be resolved shortly...

If you encounter one of these ads right now, please just refresh the page and chances are a different ad will appear. We apologize for this inconvenience and really hate these intrusive ads just as much as you likely do.

We heavily depend upon advertisements for the continued existence of Phoronix and related Phoronix Media properties but strive to ensure the ads are not intrusive, but for this latest incident and IDG TechNetwork's lackluster response thus far, we apologize. Another option would be to join Phoronix Premium, which helps us even more, but alternatives include making a donation, using our Amazon affiliate link, or visiting our other web properties like RadeonHD.org, Phoronix-Test-Suite.com, Foodstruments, or Cekora.com.
