Checked the categories and dating type ads are (still) blocked on our own rotation. Next time you see it pls do a screenshot and do a firebug report for that element (it's an extension for Chrome and Firefox) alternatively you can also give me the location of where the ad goes. It might be an ad not under our control.

 

I haven't seen one since I first posted about it. Maybe it was just a few that slipped through the filter or something.

Ad covers new forum topics block everytime I visit site.

 

I don't mind Ads, but this ad expands on every page load and completely covers the new forum posts block.

Agreed, please fix that ad.  It is very irritating.  With ads like these it makes me either close the site out of frustration, or block ads.

The issue with that ad is that it is small, and if you see a topic in the new forum post block that you want to view, it will expand and prevent you from clicking that link.

I do not ad block this site, but honestly these ads that cover items are ridiculous.

I have reported this ad again, I am interested to find out why this isn't a proper 600x300 sized ad (which doesn't cover our content).
