John Breslin announced a new classified ads website this morning, at the domain adverts.ie. A good site like this is sorely lacking in Ireland, and it being tied to Boards.ie is a boon to both the Boards crew and the community, since they have a captive audience that doesn’t need to (re-)register to post an item.
Unfortunately the domain is flagged by the popular Adblock Firefox extension, resulting in all the ad images being blocked, thereby reducing the usefulness of the site. A couple years ago, this wouldn’t have mattered, but Firefox is pretty popular these days. Let’s hope the Adblock crew will listen to reason. :)
