No, I didn't get shot.

Unrelatedly, my attitude toward Livejournal has softened a little. The advertisements still annoy me tremendously, and I plan to keep all my useful writing on the Dreamwidth account. However, I won't delete the LJ posts, and I will post mundane updates giving the details of my life on both journals, when I resume writing them. I think I'm some, uh, thirty-something months late on those.

Edit, April 2012: I'm back to being pissed off at the site. I hope you die, Livejournal.

You can white-list sites so that ads still show up using Adblock Plus. However, you can't "load but don't show". The author says that if ad sites observe that their ads are often loaded but nobody actually clicks on them, they'll consider an impression worth much less, and thus trying to trick them that way won't work.

I think you could get the effect by using other addons to hide the ads with CSS, but I'm not sure which ones do that. Blocking ads on the pages you do visit and white-listing them on those you want to support seems to be a reasonable solution. If you want to attempt hiding-but-loading, Element Hide Helper might be useful.
