What about using REJECT instead of DENY?  That way the browser should
immediately be told that the destination (in this case ad.doubleclick.net)

Someone correct me if I'm wrong on this.  I'm just in the process of
setting up my system using the IPCHAINS HOWTO, so I'm sure not an expert!

Hope this helps,
