Annoying Ad

I hate these things and try and block them on my website - don't know if it just slipped through the cracks, or if you wanted it to be shown, but Geoff, this ad is really annoying:

Blade - it's the second most annoying ad next to pop ups and unders. Yuck! It hurts my eyes to be on the same page as that thing.

I've spent quite a bit of time trying to track down the source of this ad an stop it to no avail. I'll keep at it, I agree it's annoying as hell.

If you click stop in explorer it's an even better solution (than scrolling )
