    Yeah I get the problem too. But I haven't really taken any notice of when or what makes it happen, other than the ad in the corner appears to not be loaded properly when it happens... like it's hung, but then once I mouse over it, it seems to kick in and all's well again.

    Like others have said this is the only web site which presents any issues with flash advertisements. it's also not that big of a deal to me.. but it is weird.

    I have noticed this problem on both of my computers (one a mac and one a pc), and the issue occurs whether or not I hover over the peel-away ad. The problem happens with me once I post - everything to the right of the "Support Us" link is no longer clickable.

    You are just "lazy".

    And since "majority of users are not bothered" too bad for you and me.

    It's not a bug, it's a feature.

    I imagine it'll remain as long as the advertiser pays for the ad-space.

    Perhaps it is time to boycott the advertiser . . .

    Just a thought

    What it would cost us to have our ad placed there?

    Ah that thing is really ****ing me off. (sorry to swear).

    I am the type of person who likes to click on the side scroll and pull, instead of using a mouse scroller. It annoys me, when I am at the top of a page, I have to go around the advertisement (IE go down halfway on the page and slide back up the scroll bar. If my mouse goes over it, I cannot click on any links at all, and have to refresh the page.

    Hey, just letting you guys know that the transparency isn't really working for me. I'm using latest FireFox.
