Not now no, it just stays at the bottom where it's supposed to be. Shame I can't have the option to get rid of that too though.

EDIT: WTF? It's just shaded 3/4 of the screen and started playing the ad. I've got ad blocker on so wtf?

EDIT again: I just got the option to close the MAG ad but once I went to another page it took over the screen again so fuck this shit, can't it be blocked from the site?

In my Norton log file I can see alot of things being blocked here.

Marney, do you know how to use the HOSTS file? It can be used to stop the shit.

What OS are you using? I can explain for XP, but I think it should work for Vista and 7 as well. But the location for the Hosts file might be different.

When you go to a web address (e.g. click a link), the pc will first look up that address in the Hosts file. If it's not there, the pc will look for the page on the internet. The Hosts file works almost like a phone book. It tells the pc where to go.

When you add a bad address in the Hosts file, the pc is tricked into thinking that the bad page is locally on your machine. Thus it will not load.

Spybot Search & Destroy (anti-spyware program) adds thousands of bad sites to the Hosts file for you. If you're already using Spybot, this ad server is obviously not in the list.

Thanks I'll look into it sometime.

You can learn about it here:
http://www.accs-net.com/hosts/


On my (XP) system, the Hosts file is located in this folder:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc



When you want to edit it, first create a backup copy of the Hosts file.
Then right click the file and untick the write protection.
The file does not have an extension so the pc will not know what program to open it with. Select Notepad.

Chrome also has an Adblock extension. Actually I think it has 3 to choose from. But yeah, it works just as well.

I understand you need the cash to run this place, but I'd like less obtrusive ads.

We don't make any money through the ads you lot are complaining about. They're required by the server host so that I don't have to fork about about $400 a month to keep the site up and running. If it's really that much of an issue, I'll make yet another complaint to my server host about them but to be honest the company who provide our ads don't really care, so I suggest you just get an ad blocker while I try and most likely fail again to get these stupid ads removed from the rotation.

Good stuff. Let me know if it happens again and I'll just remove the ads myself and refuse to put them back on until they fix them.
