Angry very annoying ad

I don't mind the ads, but the HP Bladesystem ad on the home page is not on. It's "always on top" attribute renders the search facility nearly useless.

Interesting, the Vonage add that appears below a viewed thread does not block the search. I guess we can not bite the hand that makes things free for the users too hard. Don't search from the Home page is a fast work around.

I never realized that contributing members didn't get the ads. I contribute just because I enjoy using this site.

I've installed the "adblock" extension in Firefox, so I never see ads from most sites. (I do, however, have the adblock options set so FF downloads the ads. That's so the site can report a download, even if I never see it, because some net advertisers pay by download. So the site gets the fee, and I avoid the annoyance.)

It seems to me that Flash seems to always want to be on top. It renders itself on top of everything else on the page, thus messing with the DHTML overlays.

The flash problem is a known bug and considered to be a browser/flash bug. While we do aim to minimise the impact it has on the site it isn't something we have direct control of in order to fix it.

Thanks for the replies. I've since learned that I can search from other places as well so the problem is not as great as I first thought.
