DIGG: Please stop with the $!&@ front page video ads!

Yeah, I know, you need to make money, fine. But it seems like every time I bring Digg up I'm seeing this girl w/ live video. Yeah, she's pretty good looking... but I'm trying to READ, damit, and having some animated bit of fluff in the lower right of my window is very distracting. So how about using some of that $300-million-value-pull and drop the !@#!@ video adds? OK? I promise I'll click on some of the less-annoying static ads if you do. THANKS!

Clearly he wouldn't mind if it were live video feeds of guys who want to chat.

YES!!!!

It's especially hard to read Digg at work when I'm on my lunch break because it looks like I'm on a porn site...

If Digg is annoying you with their plan to make money use AdBlock.
https://addons.mozilla.org
/en-US/firefox/addon/10

You can leave the room during a commercial on TV, let the browser leave the room as well.

Mac said...

I F-ing hate those ads too. They are soooo annoying

Anonymous said...

Finally! Whenever I browse digg at work it looks like I'm at a porn site :(

Anonymous said...

The bad thing is that I've looked at this add so many times that I've noticed the girl is only typing with one hand and at random letters.

I don't mind seeing big tits :)
If it bothers you that much, just download the adblock extension

Anonymous said...

normally i would agree but these chicks arr hot. Nice eye candy. Nice sweater meat.

Anonymous said...

or if your prefer IE7 install free adblocker from www.ie7pro.com

no video ads for me :)

Anonymous said...

get adblock PLUS for firefox. You will get rid of all the crap ads.

you know it doesn't matter if the guy is gay or not, but all you people calling him gay are gay for even saying it.

I'm really sickened that all of you happen to think it is just fine and dandy to throw around "fag" at every change.

He brings up a legitimate complaint and I for one agree.

Can we stop with the 5th grade insults?

Try out http://digg.originalsignal.com/ It's an aggregator that makes reading Digg a whole lot more pleasant.

Anonymous said...

biggest problem with the video ads is they slow the browser down when trying to load and play. one thing people liked most about digg, just like craigslist, and google, is its simplicity. Eye candy just slows the site down.

Anonymous said...

it's better to just look the other way with "anonymous" digg comments calling people gay....

They are most likely pre-pubescent gangsters who try to bad ass by putting their feet on the dash board of their moms mini van.

Troy said...

Hey, just thought I'd let you know it's wise to ignore all these negative comments. you've probably got thousands of visitors to this page by now, and yet a few douchebags decide to curse you off... I've had the same thing on my blog when I reported StumbleUpon needed a "duplicate" button. Even small complaints like these stir up trouble with some people, but don't let it scare you away from writing what you think.

Anonymous said...

Hey, I like the "NewzNozzl" thing even though I'm not sure i like the name... cool idea! Is that yours?

Anonymous said...

I agree 100%. In an office environment I can't have people walking by seeing that I am on a website with questionable ads the size of a poker card.

And no I cannot install ad blocking programs on Firefox or IE. The work computer is locked down.

Anonymous said...

Seems like over the course of the last few months that the ads on Digg have gotten very obnoxious. Is Microsoft supplying the ads now? I know they inked a deal a few months back. This looks like the kind of thing I would expect from Microsoft - the ads are "tasteless".

Lt. Bill Johnston said...

Text ads are annoying enough but pictures/videos leave it open for much more offensive content being put before you without the option of saying "NO!". I try to block ad pages and ad servers whenever possible just for this reason.

And to those who cannot comment beyond the sub-100 IQ "Your a faggot" - go back to 3rd grade and learn the difference between "your" and "you're". Then again it's hard to tell the difference when all you listen to are (c)rap lyrics.

Rob said...

Digg provides an amazing service.
As far as I remember it has never cost me anything.
For the small price of us ignoring some ads, Digg can continue to provide for us.
So grow up and get with the times.
Web=advertisements.
Install adblock plus if your that much of a bitch.

WrongWay said...

said before ill say it again... ADBLOCK

if you cant runn adblcok casue your using ie, well then GOOD.. if your stupid enough to use ie your stupid enough to deal with ads.

Jason said...

uhh...
IE

Tools>Internet Options>Advanced>"Play animations in web pages" and "Play videos in webpages"

Firefox
Tools>Options>Content>Pick what you want from here... too many options to pick.

Safari
Edit>Preferences>"Display images when the page opens."

Opera
Tools> Quick preferences>"Enable Plugins."

Play with those settings. You don't have to download any third party tools.

Now stop bitching. Animated advertisements are a huge revenue source. That revenue source is what makes digg worth the 3 mil.

Rezl said...

Earth to NewzNozz:
It's time to take responsibility for your web experience. If you don't like something, remove it. The tools (Adblock) are there.

Anonymous said...

Digg has ads? Never saw one.

Greg said...

I used to have AdBlock installed for Firefox. On this somewhat new install, I didn't put it out - it really hasn't been a issue, as for most pages I visit the ads are toned down (and I even click on them sometimes, to support the site).

It just seems like Digg has gone over the top as of late. I ended up installing Adblocker last night - so whatever I guess.

> Tools>Internet options>Advanced>"Play animations in web pages" and "Play videos in webpages"

Interesting idea.. but wouldn't that disable all video? I want to be able to go to break and you tube etc etc. Not worth killing that just because Digg has semi-nude womeon trying to flirt with the users... :)

Anonymous said...

Stop using internet exploder you douche and get adblock+

Anonymous said...

i agree, only because my shitty dell 1150 starts to overheat when that fucking ad is playing. then again it overheats when i think about going onto youtube, so...

Anonymous said...

If your smart enough why don't you close the window 1/3 of the way so it will block the advertisement on the right side of the screen.

Kevin said...

What Digg has ads?

Anonymous said...

Damn it digg! Why do you have to have video ads with good looking women! Why couldn't you use hobbits or something. Women are too distracting to the Digg crowd. Some users can't even read Digg now because they can't control their own eyes and they just wont unlock from the woman.

this will be the end of digg!

Anonymous said...

Suddenly, /b/tards. Thousands of them.

Seriously guys, I keep seeing you on more and more sites. What's up with that? You aren't that anonymous anymore.

Use an ad blocker!

Anonymous said...

i've honestly never even noticed... but who the fuck cares? yes... companies who provide a service *do* actually need to generate revenue of some sort. are you sending them checks in the mail every month? if not, i would suggest that you suck it up.

Anonymous said...

I agree. Ditch it. I love keeping an eye on digg during the day and apart from this ad I think the site looks sorta legitimate work'ish' related. I don't spend as much time on digg because of this ad.

AD-BLOCK:USE IT.

Anonymous said...

Block 'em. What's your problem?

Anonymous said...

Wow, I've never noticed that ad. Strange how one's mind can block things out if it wants. Well maybe not your mind, but some people's.

SadistiX said...

LOL
Is Digg becoming like TorrentSpy? So desperate to make money that they'll resort to racy ads?
Just use Google Adsense and there won't be any more of such problems.

NewzNozzl takes the top stories from the sportsbook best social news sites, combines them - and then lets you comment and Vote for the stories that you think are the best. We ONLY load the high-rated stories from each site, so by the time it hits NewzNozzl, you know it's worth looking at! Most of the social news sites are often thought of as "meta" sites - that is, bet nfl they take in and amplify what other news sites have. Nozzl can be thought of a "Meta-Meta" site - we take what other meta news sites think are worthwhile and amplify just those stories. We http://www.enterbet.com actually use the sites we feed from as a pre-filter.
