Not digging the ad redirects

Today I started to get redirects to those annoying ads with the timers in them while browsing Serious Eats.

You know the type, you click a promising link on the SE page and are instead sent to a whole page with just one really incredibly fugly ad to some dark, dank place on the internet with the count down timer on it. Sure you can click "Skip Ad" but I never thought SE would stoop to those invasive ads.

Is this something SE staff know about or have any control over? No ultimately it doesn't take a lot of time to skip out of them, but they are incredibly unsightly and unprofessional and annoying as they forcefully submit you to bad ads.

Can anyone tell this is one of my net surfing pet peeves...?
