    norton internet securities banner blocker is doing wonders for me... got it solely for the purpose of blocking the increasingly large ads on this site.

    I still vote lose it.

    You do care.. you came here an voted and then said you don't care...

    Not caring would be not voting.

    But i guess you like mass advertising, pop-ups, spam and agravating banners that pop-down when you accidently mouse over it...

    SHEEP!!!

    It's not really a pop up. But a banner with a mouse over.

    I say keep it. I recall the dreaded bunny popup. And would hate to that crappy bunny come back (or even anything close to it).

    So unless people want to shell out $$$ from your pocket. Stop whining.

    seems to be an IE only phenomenon, I've never seen it with Moz.

    it's a banner add that reacts to a mouse over.. and when it drops down it covers all the top buttons...

    Should I have used two or maybe three of these: ?

    Don't mouse over it... How much are they paying to host the ad? if you don't like it you can pay them not to advertise...

    to repeat megatoon on the first page...

    Flshkit is still a free resource. The ads... totally ignorable... especially in the case of the Microsoft mouse-over one.

    Get over it.
