stupid ad box

I don't mind the ads, but the stupid ad box on the right of the forum page above the "recent discussions" box is constantly changing sizes and overlapping the boxes around it. if it can't get corralled in to stay within it's frame, can it get moved to the bottom or something? It's really annoying.

It's actually more related to your account than it is the computer/ browser.

Same browser/computer as Z.G - no box
Same browser/computer as RoversNorth - 2 ad boxes

People with Macs get more ads, because they like buying crap.

can someone fix this please? it only started happening recently so I've got to think the issue is not because of our computers or browser but rather site related.

I'm telling you it's account related. I run adblock pro and get no ads on this account, but I'll log out and log back in under RoversNorth and get ads. It must be a usercp setting or something on the backend

The ads are the income stream that keep this site free. Other sites have had to move to paid membership models to be self sustaining.

The domain name and server space aren't free resources.

exactly... I don't mind the ads when they happily live in their assigned spaces. Its the fact they are now bleeding over and blocking content i have an issue with. Stop worrying about policing Shayne and fix it please.
