    I know these are a bit of a pain, but they are not forever, and will be going back to you guys in the form of pizza and for those helping us out at BETT in paying for meals, taxis and all the other unexpected things that crop up. If you really want to find out what our costs are I shall get Tony to publish the bills for electricity, insurance, networking, lighting and furniture for you. Then you can sit slack jawed in wonder about how they can charge so much!!
    Please bare with us, we are not doing this just to raise a huge mound of cash to spend on beer and ice cream (although I must admit the idea did pass my mind).

    What browsers are you using? I'm going to pass this up to IDG I think.

    I had a problem with the symantec ad as well with IE7 and XP sp2. Had the give it the three fingered salute and force IE to close. It hasn't happened again (yet).

    I have not even had the ad yet (no ad blockers involved) I must be lucky enough not to be part of the target audience

    I have moved the ad code around. Is the ad working now for you all or not appearing anymore?

    appeared again recently with the dodgy positioning so the X was unavailable, FF3 on XP. Earlier post was from FF3 on vista.

    Do you realise this thread has nothing to do with the symantic ads, or even the banner ads in general. It was about the dodgy "Click this link if you would like a virus/your bank account emptying" ads which are more suited to fetish porn and crack sites than professional forums

    Well I don't know about you, but I find the ability to make contact with 'Women over 40 in your area NOW!!' from EduGeek a very handy feature!
    We have to cater for everyone you know.

    That's your opinion ZH, it helps speed up my browsing. Deleting the list is pointless as it's the end user who has the choice at the end of the day.....

    Mattx: Those rules you posted would not have fixed the symantec issue.

    JSparky17: Please take a look at:
    http://www.edugeek.net/forums/edugee...tml#post235605
    and follow those instructions if you see anymore, its just the joy of google adsense. It is supposed to remove what could be seen as dodgy ad's but its not perfect.
