I like the DECK ads, but the American Apparel ones aren't like the others. They are objectifying and cliched and make me wince every time they pop up. Any way for MetaFilter block those specific ads or send feedback to the DECK people to let them know they're hurting their brand by allowing that kind of crap?
The mystery is solved! The longest AsMeFi thread in history finally yields an answer, after six weeks!
Google Ad problem? Everything on the blue pages load, right up to the ADVERTISEMENT part of the Google Ad sidebar, then nothing loads after that. (screen shot)
