Enough with the light show!

DPR's home page has become a mass of moving, rolling, flashing images - enough to give a non-member of the MTV generation a brain seizure. I guess they think if a little good, then a LOT must be better. I literally am having a hard time dealing with this stuff and have consciously started to avoid these types of sites. Just because you can doesn't mean you have to.

Before others jump in to tell you to change the browser, use add-ins and similar, visit this site and download their host file. Ads and other stuff – gone for good. Works with any browser, on any website, any Win OS.

Disable flash

Simple suggestion: disable flash. Or, better: have two browsers installed on your computer: one with no flash plugin for "normal browsing" and another one, with flash plugin, that you start only in those rare instances when flash content is something you really, really want.

Re: Enough with the light show!

To me, more disturbing are the promos with th white background. I don't care to see promos, only the white background is disturbing.
