    Really, what is this ad about? I don't have enough video RAM to even see it, and it stops me from doing anything until I scroll down so it's not on the screen.

    Actually, I don't care what it's about. I want it gone. :gun4:

    What the hell are you people doing to see so much crap? I hate to sound like madster but Firefox with AdBlock Plus has never steered me wrong. Oh, and moving to GRandmasters.

    It's an integrated ad, you know, on the top of the site. I'm using Firefox, and unless there's some magical ad blocker that removes all integrated ads, I can't block it.

    Then I think you need to check your ad-blocker settings, because it blocks those.

    Indeed.

    De-Ting, you may notice that there are no ads in my window besides the one for Vox Pop which I have allowed through manually. I guess I have that magical ad blocker.

    Ah yes, thank you. And how do you get it to do that?

    Download the filterset.G set of rules. If manually adding addresses place @@ before the address to add it as an exception.

    yes, i highly recommend ad blocker. i know that sounds contrary to our best interest, but i do. new technologies need to be embraced, they're not going to go away.

    the goal is to find the medium where ads are compelling or subtle enough that people don't feel the need to have to go through the trouble of installing an ad blocker.
