Advertising over the message posting

Anyone else getting a British Columbia ad in the middle of the message post. Can't read posting. Haven't been able to get rid of it.

Clicked on it a couple hundred times, so maybe if they are paying for the clicks, it might go away eventually.

Yep, me too! I had to quickly "grab" the reply link before the thing appeared to be able to post this response.

Yes, it's awful. There is a long thread on the Asia board about it and someone contacted Katie about it.

I'm on a Mac, too, but the pop-up blocker is not stopping this annoying message.

Still there on some posts. It now obscures the first part of Hali's post about his AWOL TA.

Not to promote one browser over another, but Mozilla Firefoxhas popup blocking as well as plug in downloads fr ad blocking. I get virtually no ads online...pop up, pop under o banners. Only a fewhere and there, and NONE on Fodors.

The Mozilla add on is called Adblock Plus. It will eliminate the pesky ads you mention, apparently....
