Is it just me?

I find it really distracting/annoying to have paid adds imbedded in the list of news stories on the Yahoo.com homepage.  It is misleading to have a so-called "sponsored" items included with the actual news items. Don't ATT and Yahoo already get enough revenue from pop-ups without corrupting the news?

You can use the addon named "Adblock Plus" on Firefox and Chrome that will block the ads if you find them annoying.
