    GCHQ Advert Problem

    Whever this silly GCHQ Advert appears on a thread it completeley screws up web browsing - mouse stutters, scroll bars stutter - the PC is reduced to a complete mess.

    2.33 Core 2 Duo / 2GB Ram / Raptor HDD / WinXp Pro.

    Rest of the site is fine but as soon as this advert appears say bye bye to usability!!!

    Please get rid of this advert until it is fixed!

    Same problem here. Awful when GCHQ advert is on page. The advert is animated/video. Has a globe on which unzips. I have a screenshot, but only managed to grab the last stage.

    Yup thats the one the big globe swooshing and wooshing around.

    It's _really_ bloody annoying now as it seems to come up on 50% of threads.

    On IE6 here for my sins.

    Its caused by GCHQ downloading your thoughts, looking for deviants.

    LOL

    Can someone possibly capture the url it goes to when clicked?
    It smells of google adsense but I cant tell from the pic.

    I have tried to block it using one method. If you get this after a hour or so repost please.
