Since when does a software Vendor use obtrusive advertising on their own site?

It used to be, in all cases, a vendor who wanted to advertise their wares or services would pay for ad spaces on other sites.  Well, I think I’ve found the first exception to the rule.

You know those obtrusive ads we all hate, where you jump to a web site to read an article but are confronted with a Advertising Splash page – where you can’t access the content until you either a) click on the ad, or b) click the “Skip this Ad” link?

I just dropped out to ScriptLogic’s web site to check on something, and was confronted with the following screen:

Looks like ScriptLogic is taking the same approach that many other content sites are taking.  I’d be interested to know if it works in this case.
