October 18, 2002: (adverts inside)

Google is now putting targeted ads on the same pages as Usenet posts (example). This seems pretty intrusive and annoying. It'd be much nicer if the ads were over in the blank space on the right like they are in Google searches (example).

One reader writes "Riots are starting in silicon valley as bad memories ( come back to the minds of thousands of eager users."
