Sparkpeople may be free because of ads, but c'mon!

I have found recently that if I am unable to spin the Sparkwheel because a cell phone lacks flash, I will be awarded "1 points" which is a number lower than any that is even an option when I spin the wheel on my desktop. I'm sure that is because I was not able to be shown an ad or two while the wheel was spinning. I'm okay with that.
What has me writing this blog is that I just read a Health article which had some words highlighted in blue and unsderlined. Which means they are links. And I was pleased to see "Wellbutrin" linked because it came up in a discussion at work and I was going to Google it. The link saved me some time? NO! Clicking on that link, and any other one in the article, took me to an ad for Excedrin. That is a sneaky rotten way to insert an ad. And my attempt at saving a few seconds has cost me minutes because now I am blogging instead of Googling.
