While on the subject of /., is anopne else having their ad prefs ignored? They have added ads (bottom of page, top of comments), in addition to the header and sidebar. Now, I can recheck my ad prefs and they just all dont go away. Sometimes none do. At home I now surf with adblock on /. because of this. At work and on my mobile devices I have not gone so far yet.

I guess I am wondering if this is across the board or only 'random users' like beta. The do seem to be constantly givving me mod points.. maybe an attempt at compensation for the ads?
