I'm not sure why the ad networks would need to do anything. You'd think, OTOH, that publishers like YNet would drop ads that included the redirects, especially since they're taking the user away from the publication. At this point I blame Ynet more than the ad network. It's sort of like the womany who refuses to leave the husband who's beating her.

Well Larry, that is just to dam simple. Come up with something hard.
