The irony is strong on this one

I am a long time Smashing Magazine fan. They dish out some quality contents all the time and they are constantly improving. But recently they have been a little bit too cluttered with ads for my taste. So when I saw this post on their site I couldnÂ’t stop laughing to myself.

How ironic is it, that a design blog with an opinion piece on why web designers shouldnÂ’t use Ad blockers and yet the site is flooded with ads and has zero content above the fold? This is a full screen on a Macbook, obviously you will get more screen-space on a larger screen, but not much really.
