I don't mind ads. While I have adblocker installed, I never used it on deviantart. I think it's fair to view (and maybe even click when it's interesting) the ads if I use the site.
But seriously, this reloading every minute is fucking annoying. Plus it's usually the same ad. I have 20 tabs open and wham, suddenly they all start reloading. It makes deviantart unusable.
There are two ways out:
1) I manage to stop the reloading.
2) I quit deviantart for good.
I'd much prefer the first, but haven't found out how to do it yet. Any ideas?
Well anyway, there are other sites too, deviantart shouldn't think that they can do anything and get away
