Google Content Blocker
Here's a good idea: Google Content Blocker. It allows you to block all that annoying content, so you only have to see the ads:

Google's mission is to organize the world's advertising for maximum exposure to Web users. Unfortunately, annoying Web content often overwhelms the page, causing many users to become distracted and overlook the ads. That's where Google Content Blocker comes in. It effectively blocks all Web site content, leaving only the advertisements...
After you install Google Content Block, just surf the Web as you normally do. When we find a site that has content, we will block that content so you see only the ads. It all happens automatically, with no effort on your part.

Whoops, in my excitement over this, I made a typo. I meant tolerate.

By the way, many of the names on the "Nigerian e-mail conference" page are of real people-- African former heads of state, politicians, and so forth.

These hoaxers obviously haven't experienced some of the banners and pop-ups I have. They block a site's content just fine by themselves.
