    Indeed. There is another, more humorous reason why I like it. Let's just say I question their font choice.

    This ad is very annoying. It took me forever to log in.

    I just try to scroll around it. Internet Exploder works just about as well with Firefox with it. It's prevented me from logging in several times.

    And for some reason when I look at the page in Firefox, I can't log in at all. I don't get the little text thing when I'm over the textbox to log in.

    Which is why Microsoft Antispyware comes in handy so well. All I have in IE is IE and the google toolbar.

    Oh, good. I thought it was just me having that problem. I usually refresh the page until it shows an ad that doesn't interfere.

    It's not Adblock that you want...It's noscript. Adblock won't work on this. Though you do have to say that Gateworld.Net is an approved site for javascript. But ABSOLUTELY DON'T ACCEPT falkag.net.

    Err, Adblock does in fact work. I'm using it right now.

    Any ads. Google ads, flash ads - anything.
    Download Adblock Plus, and the Adblock Filterset.G Updater. It will kill 99% of the ads around. The filterset.g thing is basically a big list of known adsites that automatically gets updated and added to adblocks filter list. You can also manually block ads (and not just ads but image links, flash objects etc. It's handy for blocking those huge sigs that people like to use...)

    Oooh, I didn't know about the updater - I opened the list of blockable components on the page, and had adblock block that specific ad. Thanks!

    grrr, well, this is a first. Normally those ad thingies don't impede my forum perusing, but that stupid poltergeist one is occasionally interfering *scowl*

    Oh yes, a handful of people using filters will make Gateworld go bankrupt.

    I don't mind the Google ads or other static ones, but those drop-downs are a royal pain in the ass and I'm not fond of the flashy animated ones, either. Home comp has filters, work comp does not. Most of my time is at work, anyway.

    Don't take this the wrong way, but that really isn't of any concern to me. I'm not blocking the ads because I want GW to go bankrupt, I'm blocking the ads because they piss me off

    I only tunr the blocker on when this new ad appears, once its gone, I turn it off. And so GW won't go bankrupt
