I see it all too often; I click a link to an article on the web and I get this:
It's not (as) readily apparent it's an ad screen, at first I thought it was the classic "white screen" of a page that failed to load. This greets a lot of us who use ad blocking add ons when browsing pages with these ad-splash screens.
Is there a better way to handle ad screens when the ad is removed? I've only ever seen one website "know" that you had removed it's ads in the past, Newgrounds.com displays a nagging message saying something to the effect of "hey, you blocked our ads! Buy something in our store instead to support us".
What can or should be done to compliment the experience of users disabling your ads. Perhaps even (professionally) goading them into enabling ads for that particular site, as newgrounds (fairly unprofessionally) does?
