    I have moved the box anyway down a post to aid a little but looking for the cause of the positioning issue. I will hopefully get more details about the ad's soon too.

    That's interesting Ben. Are you in school atm? If you are what filtering cast are you on? We're on the standard Norfol Schools Secondary cast here and all I ever get is accused of playing into the hands of BSF - no ads.

    I find if you have your browser window'ed, the adverts are roughly in the middle of the posts. If you then maximise the browser window full screen, then return it to a window, the advert moves to the far right. This is using FF.

    Just to let you all know it has been reported. Once I know they have replicated it I will pull the adverts temporarily.

    It's now in the same position but on the second post of a thread here (I'll take a screenshot if you need it, but it's basically the same problem).

    I had the same and normally I always let the ads through but am getting to the point where they are just getting in my way so have started to use an ad blocker now - for the time being , can disable it again when this is resolved

    I'de be turning Ad Block on too, if I could get it to work. It would seem that as "user" I can't install any ad-ons. Hence my spling will have gone to rat****!

    Right I have disabled the ad provider of the virgin one so they should be gone for now until I hear of a fix. Pain should be over for now, thanks all for reporting

    I've got IE7 here and it's annoying me too!

    It happens on the 'New Posts' search with the 'sponsored links' ad across the top too.

    Just an update, the campaign has been removed from our site so it hopefully shouldnt be back.
