    No more ads.  Period.  Makes the site run smoother, too.

      as the ads aren't being generated by DKos but a browser plugin.  Unless this site is now offering hosted desktop VMs (like Amazon EC2) there is nothing that can be done on that end.

        We've been wondering how to get through the clutter and reach low-information voters. Mitt haz it.

          I suspect the poster might have been addressing the "anywhere else that you don't expect it" part of the equation.

          Those plugins that they throw on everything that you try to install are getting really bad.  I even get them on software I purchase in stores.  It's as bad or worse than ads on purchased DVD movies and television shows.

        •  Not true. All subscribing does is prevent DKos (0+ / 0-)

          from sending ads.  If there is software on the person's computer (such as a malware plugin) that is generating it's own ads and injecting them then not even using HTTPS will stop that as the site has to be decrypted before it is displayed.  Basically, the software is patching the site as it is loaded into the memory of the person's computer (think Gameshark) to put ads where there weren't any.
