Lettin the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin it back in.

Most of the stuff people worry about ain't gonna happen anyway.

Crazy! Can you get an ad blocker? I've never had that happen at all...

Odd. I've never had them intrude upon reading posts before like that though. Sorry, I don't really have any suggestions!

Hmmmm that is very Odd Winston. I've never seen that ever. The ads should never hide the content....arrrgh. What browser and operating system are you using and are you surfing from a normal desktop or laptop?

Unfortunately the ads help pay for stuff....We've made them less intrusive over the years....and have some ideas on making them even less intrusive in the nearish future. Sorry bout the hassle.

Maybe you should try using Firefox. It might help.

I downloaded IE8 and found problems with trying to connect to certain websites through my google homepage. I then downloaded Google Chrome and it eliminated the website connection problems.
