Report stuff that shouldn't be in our ad rotation (e.g. gold farming) in this thread and I'll nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure...

    Any chance we could nuke the Civony ad with the half naked chick? Makes having GT open at work a little iffy. :paranoid:

    The international Muslim Matrimonials site? Really?

    Not that I have an issue with the religion aspect, but do we really need ads for a mail-order bride service?

    Nuked a bunch of ads this morning. I'll keep working on trying to find links for the ads mentioned, but I really do need a link to ban it properly - they may not serve their ads from their own site. :)

    Not a ban request, but at 1024*768 in IE7 (only resolution/browser we develop in), the banner ads are bleeding over to cover up other screen elements. So it looks like I'm browsing the forums at "GamingT" and the banner covers up a bit of the User Info box.

    Yeah, that's what I thought (shakes fist at BlackDay).

    I will try to adjust that issue when I get a chance, but I have to admit, it's a little low on my list right now :P

    Right side banner ad that plays video.

    Top of page Flash ad that strobes and plays a "Congratulations! You won!" audio file. Text is something similar to the 1,000,000 visitor nonsense.

    And on this page, there's a "you are missing the Download manager to play video", which I believe are usually attempts to get you to click for a malware download. Also flash.
