It comes up on the left side when reading threads on this site,

It has the opposite effect as I will boycott them for being obnoxious.

Yeah, I just noticed it a few minutes ago and thought it was annoying too.

I just installed Firefox to block it.

Who? Where? What did I miss? I think I just had a seizure.

I know some of the flashing ads are a bit annoying. Sorry about that.. But the reality is that without them, we wouldn't be getting our new server.. I know where you're coming from but I've opted to simply look past this minor inconvenience when visiting other sites because I know first hand that they're there to offset server costs (amongst other costs). It really is a small price to pay to keep a website free and if everyone blocked them, it would hurt the site in the long-run. I wish there was a way for visitors to block certain ads instead of 'all of them'.

I'm sure it will go away soon. It can't possibly last for long...
