This has been a topic of discussion in the forums for quite some time. OmniGroup figures itís better to just blank out ads without changing the site structure as intended by the web dev. Also, with ads just disappearing, you never know whether there was some image that, per chance, had an usual ad format and isnít visible because you enabled ďblock known ad sizesĒ. Happened a lot to me in forums; without OW showing the imagesí real estate, I would have wondered why so many people didnít have avatars and sigs any more Ö
I like OWís behaviour better than Firefox / AdBlock Plusí. But thatís probably down to taste, too. A user-configurable option might be the best solution.
