Well, I'm never going to watch "Frontier(s)"

... mainly because that ad is bugging the hell out of me. It expands without me ever rolling over it, and several times it's still played even when I "close" the ad... and then it expands, and plays, again! It's not a random occurrence either, appearing on nearly every page I go to. How long is this advertising supposed to go on for, because it's doing the exact opposite of what it should be doing.

I came here to complain about the same ad. I don't mind sound in ads, or video ads, or flash ads. But when I have no way to control it, then this becomes an issue. Are you using Firefox as well?

Ditto. It just keeps playing over and over again. I've been getting 2 popups of it per page and both playing audio. ARGH.

Seriously, this is a big problem. I can't have scary music or images popping up with little kids in my house. Please kill this ad, Geoff.

Still, make it go away.

I cannot say when this will be looked into by IB but I have just emailed their representative in order that someone can check this out.

Me too. Using Firefox, and that damn ad is popping up on every page. Sometimes it covers actual posts, and I can't get rid of it.

I also don't consider it to be very "family friendly." And with the unstoppable audio and video of graphic images, I for one think this ad violates the forum rules

BEGONE, DAMMIT!

I didn't come here to complain. I just knew there would be a thread to read

I know it pays the bills but it IS a tad annoying.

It's nice to see I'm not the only one who's annoyed by this ad.
