Hi

One of the Google ads at the top of the page seems to load automatically without even hovering over it. Repeatedly.

It's bloody annoying, because it's got audio that autoruns, not good when insomniac me is checking up on PO in the middle of the night.

I've never been to Turkey, and don't need to now I've seen and heard enough of it! :x

Even worse, PO.com is profiting from tar sands ads:

The ads we see seem to be based on our browsing habits, although often it's a mystery. For a while, the Internet advertisers thought I wanted to meet young ladies from India with MBAs.
