Omg an ad blocker!!!
Lately I've been watching a lot of youtube videos from this one guy and they had ads at the beginning AND end of every video AND whenever you got out of full screen mode! It was SOOooo annoying! I've seen the Beneful dog food commercial like 10 billion times. I practically memorized every word of it! I hate that commercial! Now I just installed Ad Blocker Plus, which is a free addon for Firefox. The ads are all gone!!! Amazing! I didn't know this could be done. They say it eliminates ads from 90% of web sites.

Yeah, it's one off the few essential Firefox add-ons. You can right mouse click on stuff and add it or its location to your blocked URL list too. I use their subscription service as well, which is updated with known ad URL locations you can block.
Been using it for a couple years now. I don't know what I'd do without it. Probably spend a lot less time surfing the web.
There hasn't been too much backlash against it I think because it really isn't worth the time of the advertisers and hosts to fight against the minority that use it.
Of course, feel free to not block ads on sites you want to help support or which provide info about products you might be interested in (especially at places such as RCG... )
If there are any RCG admins/mods lurking, you'll be pleased to know that RCG's hosted ads aren't on their subscription lists.

Huh... works. Google ad bar is gone on RCG... Blank anyway. However I did see the add for an automotive battery for an automotive store I ended up buying from. Nothing else since then.

You're right. I hadn't noticed that one.
Probably blocked because it's pulled from another site which is listed in the subscription, but not hosted (per se) on RCG.
They want me to switch to Google Chrome...
