MAKE. THEM. GO. AWAY.

They might be only in the content localized for Germany, but they're there, and they're ****ing playing arse pop-song ring-tone snippets at me.

Can you provide any kind of identifying info (e.g. the source URL for the ad, or the page it links to)? Since I am not in Germany, I am not getting those ads and thus cannot gather that information myself (and unfortunately, it's the only way MacNN's owner can track down the ad in order to pull it).

All of them link to www.jamba.de.****inghelliain'tgivingthemclickseven accidentally, and they're all Flash ads, not image banners.

Thank you very much.

I'm sorry about the obscenity, but I HATE audio ads with a real passion.

STILL THERE!!!

They don't lead to Jamster, but to the GERMAN JAMBA site. (Jamster, IIRC, is the British version of the same bunch of criminals and noise polluters.)

Oh snap - anything I copy from that code now gives me that insanely stupid "Error on your Windows machine" banner with an obviously machine-translated text and a button that says "unrestricted viewing" in German instead of "Free Scan"...
