Apparently they've programmed their page server to synchronously load ads, holding pages hostage to the ad servers. If this is intentional, boo. If this is unintentional, there are boatloads of Computer Science undergrads who can do asynchronous web programming in their sleep.
Either way, this programming faux-pas has driven a number of readers (including myself) to download Adblocker, ultimately reducing ad revenues. Economic evolution in action, I'm afraid.
