Fly Ad

I'm not sure you can do anything about this, but I thought I'd express my concern.

At the bottom of every page there is this really annoying ad that says "Swat the Fly, get a free gift card" but the fly is constantly buzzing, and it is VERY annoying. The only solution I can think of is to turn my speakers off, but I listen to music alot while online (like now) and I can even hear that annoying fly over my music.

The admins are looking into talking to the advertising company about getting it removed.

Jerry D talked to the ad company about this today and they're looking into it.

There's another one as well. It's the Brad Pitt papparazzi one. It makes some type of noise as well. As for turning off the speakers well that's a great idea but as another poster stated they use them for music. I do as well not to mention other media like video's and things where my speakers need to be on. I realize advertisers want to do whatever it takes to get your attention but what's next, a jolt of electricity to your mouse.

I've spoken to our advertising company, and they're supposed to remove the buzzing fly ad.
