Star Telegram Gets Worse Just When You Thought It Was Impossible

I like the hard copy of the Star Telegram but its web site is horrible. There is about 2 square inches of relevant material but the rest is a mess of advertising and stale material.

Tonight hit an all time low point when a "flash" type advertisement popped up on the screen - a HUGE ad that covered half the screen (see above). The Dallas Morning News has been whipping our arse with flash ads for three years but now the ST has joined in. But the drive-me-insane moment came when I finally found the "close" button on the ad only to have it not "close". So it sat there obstructing half the screen so I had no choice other than to actually read it. As you can tell, it was an advertisement for an event that ended yesterday.

Good job their there, boys. Good job.
