Just got knocked halfway cross the room by this huge Flash ad that takes up most of the screen...

As we've seen the 'Hood ruthlessly killing off various instances of the Horror Known as Tina©, might we also see him ruthlessly kill off this bugger?

ACK!

But I had to fire up Opera to see that shyte. I use an anti-ad CSS in Safari, and never see junk like that.

If you see that "expanding" ad again, please cut/paste the source code of the page (ad tag specifically) so i can ban that network until they comply with our regulations.

best,

Hey what's that thing on the top? What program does that thing where applications are shown in the boxes you click.

Haha... ahem... hrm...

(It's called Windows XP )

I like using Opera (on Windows), since Safari = nonexistant, and FireFox = not working anymore, for some strange reason...

I'll copy the code next time, should have thought about it the first time I saw it

Yeah I figured that was what it was since the File edit view thing wasn't on top and it was in the window.
