Hi everyone -

Just a quick note - I've finally gotten back from Peru and am spending today to track down this ad. Apologies for the delays, just bad luck it popped up while I was out of the country.

stephen, it looks like you've succeeded in removing the evil ad, for which i am very grateful!

however, i have my doubts as to whether the timing was accidental---that ad was evil enough to KNOW when you were gone and that we had been left unprotected! (wiggle your eyebrows a few times, groucho-style, as you read that last part.)

Default another "evil" ad!

shades of the sony ads!!

i just had a 'golden nugget' ad to the right of my puzzle (another "roll over here for details" ad that jumps out even if you don't roll over it)---suddenly their video covered most of the puzzle. i clicked and clicked on the "close x" in the upper right corner but it ignored me for quite a while--each time i clicked on it, the letters "close x" would sort of jiggle & bend and then re-set--very weird!

i was just getting ready to go the "recent games" route when it finally closed and i could get back to the puzzle.

whee!

Default another floating ad

I too have been bothered by a floating ad. Mine is something green on the left side. I didn't investigate fully, but it appears to be some sort of survey that says "your opinion counts". I believe it pops in when my mouse rolls over the link for "hate ads?", but cannot be certain. I just quickly close it to get back to my puzzle.

Default these blasted golden nugget ads

i've had that one, too---only once---some sort of survey---i'll pay more attention if i see it again.
but this golden nugget is really ticking me off---speaking of which, it's to the right of this page right now. i'm giving it the evil eye and daring it to expand---it seems to be working, but it's hard to do that while one is trying to solve a puzzle.
