Thumbs down Vibrant advertising pop-ups

Is it just me are these effing advertising pop-ups getting more and more pervasive? I mean geez they're really starting to P-I-S-S - M-E - O-F-F; so much so in fact that they seriously detract from the experience of contributing to this site.

Don't get me wrong, I understand the need to advertise so that the bills can be paid, but come on, this is a bit over the top. As a suggestion, how about offering a Premium Membership of some sort that disables these things; I for one would gladly contribute something to say "Bye-bye" to these things permanently.

Update...

I'm kinda answering my own question here; by installing Ad Muncher (http://www.admuncher.com), one can eliminate those freaking "mouse-over" pop-ups pretty much no matter where you go in the internet.

Yet another update (not to by confused with "yacc" for you Unix/Linux types)...

I just downloaded Ad Muncher and geez, I think I'm in love; how did I go so long without this wonderful little program?

I don't get them on my laptop, but see a lot when I'm on the desktop??
Must be some add-on or setting that allows that content. It is a PITA though, I agree.
