Malicious Stumbling

The last time I clicked the Stumble! button, I got a site called “Swear in German.”  Okay pretty cool.  But when I hit stumble again, the site popped up a million little ad windows for travel agencies and a bunch of Javascript boxes telling me that I can’t navigate away from the page until I click on the sponsor’s ads.  WTF?  I’m using Firefox with an adblocking proxy on my router.
