    I don't quite think it's spy/malware but the square ads at the bottom are been REALLY annoying, they make sh*t loadsa noise and can get in the way. Could be solved with AdBlock but I don't really like to use it...

    Has this been happening with anyone else?

    This is a known issue, Bgizzle (site admin) knows about it. It seems to be a "regional" problem, he is working on fixing it.

    Yes, the mods have already brought this to my attention. This is a geotargeted ad so I've unfortunately been unable to recreate the issue, but I'm working with our ad providers to track it down and remove it. Thanks for the heads up though.

    Way at the bottom there is a video ad sometimes. ABP blocks it for me in Firefox

    Oh I see it, is ABP a plugin for FF?

    I think I've tracked this down and it should be fixed. Please let me know if it persists.

    Shoot, that's really annoying. This time i think i got it. If not, please keep on posting about so that I can move forward with escalating this with our ad providers. This is completely unacceptable.
