Anyone else find flashing banner ads annoying?

Flashing banner ads are pretty much the bane of an internet user's existence. Sometimes they're so obnoxious that they spread out over the entire page multiple times throughout a user's browsing experience. I suppose the simplest solution would be to use the Adblock extension with Firefox, or to take advantage of Opera's native content blocker. Both are quite effective in blocking ads, especially animated Flash ones. I've heard that there is also an alternative for Internet Explorer users, but have yet to do more research on it. So, does anyone else dislike the flashy ads that infest today's websites? What methods do you use to circumvent it?
