I try to sign in tonight, go to the front page, where immediately a Mc Donald's ad for egg mc muffins pops up RIGHT over a story. I clicked the X to close it and it won't go away, blocking one of the stories and information I'm trying to see. Come on. This is ridiculous. I'd be willing to fork over a membership fee if we could get rid of these damn ads.
