ad reminder


I just got one of those horrible flashing seizure inducing ads and just wanted to remind everyone - if you see one of these please let me know ASAP so I can remove it. They should never make it through in the first place but every once and a while they do. Thanks.

Is there a way to set up a link to "report this ad"?

I don't know the exact ad being servered at any given time, so I couldn't automate it. I could put a text link there but I am not sure it happens enough to warrant it.

Nah, now that I look at the source, I realize the problem. . . Oh,
well.

I just saw a couple of annoying adverts. One was a "your computer's data is currently at risk" warning ad, I don't know if
you mind those on or not (they look like 'doze warning messages).
It was one of those tall ads on the front page.
The other(s?) is shockwave flash, and I don't have that installed, so
I just get a "download plugin" message. Again, I don't know if you
mind flash ads or not. Just thought I'd let you know. I don't have
a URL for either of them, sorry.

Not to be a pain. . . Do you mind the windows error look-a-like
ads? If not, I'll stop reporting them, but there's another one on the
front page (tall, skinny).

I don't know if this link is useful for finding the ad:

I do tend to remove the error message ads, but occasionally let them slide. I often miss the skyscraper on the home page. Thanks moses.
