Found an unblockable ad, and I can't report it.

I have found a very annoying ad for Best Buy on the Extreme Tech web site. I have tried several times to block it, but upon reload, the ad returns. I have followed all of the instructions (except for trying on Firefox) for verifying if the ad truly can't be blocked by AdBlock, and it can't. Finally, at the end, I am presented with the EasyList forum in which to report the ad. I have tried to create a login there, but all I get when I attempt this is:

No soup for you! It looks like you have been flagged as a spammer.

Please investigate the ad, and the inability for creating an account so as to help report unblockable ads.

    Hi Jason,

    I've reported this to the folks at EasyList for you. Hopefully you'll be able to follow the discussion even if you're unable to create an account there:

    Hi Jason,

    According to the EasyList maintainers, one of the following rules should work. Can you please add the first one to your custom filters and see what happens? If that one doesn't work, please try the second one.

    Try this one first:
    @@||googletagservices.com/tag/js/gpt.js$script,domain=extremetech.com

    Try these if that one doesn't work:
    extremetech.com##IFRAME[width="300"][height="250"]

    extremetech.com##IFRAME[width="728"][height="90"]

    ||extremetech.com/wp-content/themes/extremetech/js/site.js?p=$subdocument
