    I just got an ad that advertised RBNY in the MLS Cup Final. Worst ad yet. :)

    Just saw a CC advert that did not do anything visual when moused over - have the speakers off so I don't know about audio.

    The D&B top banner ad freezes my page, making me have to reload the page. Minor inconvenience, but still irritating.

    No. It means we get our ads from multiple providors and sometimes it is hard to track the source of one particular ad.

    It would be great to discontinue the Wii because it really disrupts the normal opening of a page by the abrupt freese of the uptake leaving only the ad visible below the BS header

    if you cant control what ads are on the site, i would consider that worse than theft.

    Whose to say some malicious flash ads wont be put on BS and infect BS users computers and install trojans, keyloggers, exploit clickjacking, etc.

    This is not theft, its is protection from unsecured websites.

    I not only recommend adblock, but I also recommend noscript, which will block any and all scripts that are runnign on the site or from a 3rd party site.

    The browser is at the top of the attack vector list for hackers.

    no chiquitibum, it's not subscribe or else. we are workign diligently every day to avoid all those issues. we are extremely strict with who we allow to advertise. every so often one gets thru that we have to manually track down.
