    That Hamilton Ad is hiding the drop down menus behind it! Can't get to quick links, search, etc.

    Ads NEVER annoy me here. they appear in a small box above the list of threads and no where else. Now some of the new ads on other sites are a pain, you know the ones you mouse over and they balloon to the whole page and have no obvious method to close them or shrink them.

    THE 'ROLL OVER' ad is what I'm referring to. Hamilton Beach Quick Dry. It causes the drop down menus to fall behind it. Even after clicking on it, getting a video and sound on it, it refuses to 'minimize' to allow access to the board features.

    Never had that problem here. I have yet to see that type on this site.

    It started for me last evening. Wow, I thought we'd all get the same ads, but guess not.

    Kathianne, if you get the monkey/banana/ringtone one don't throw a heavy object at your monitor to hit the monkey, it plays merry hell with the monitor :lol:

    (got the little bugger though :badgrin: )

    I had the ringtone ones last week, other than the screaming one making me 'jump', they were pretty easy to ignore. Not so this one. As I said, it hides the drop downs, makes them impossible to use. It also 'expands' if 'rolled over', there is this very tempting 'close' button, which fades if you come close to it! :eusa_wall: :eusa_boohoo:

    1. Procure a new monitor before you do the next step.
    2. Get a hammer
    3. Swing said hammer

    Don't know about any of "that", but this has become the hardest board to get around on, takes the longest to load, and once "on", takes the longest between "clicks".

    WTF is going on?
