The BIG UGLY Ad banner is here !!

The Verge....

I understand the need for you guys to generate revenue through ads. I understand that you work tirelessly to try and provide us with the best tech news coverage for FREE. But please, please don't put up ads like the one you have right now on the front page. It just destroys your website. I've already accidentally clicked on the Verizon Ad multiple times since this morning. The 'expanding' ad was alright in my opinion as it would go away. But this just blankets the entire header of the site. The entire whitespace around the header and top news section becomes clickable. Please get rid of this.....if you can.
