the current solution is, I hope, only temporary, because it makes the site heading look amatuerish.
VC is the only place I've seen ads of a larger size. Popups are bad enough, but I can turn off scripting and negate those. Being that it's hideously annoying and intrusive, I would think the advertisers would want to placate the masses and switch back ... instead of forcing themselves on us. Didn't anyone learn from New Coke?

Looks like you folks need Ad filtering software...

I have ad-filtering wetware. My brain ignores 99% of what I'm not interested in.
Until it was suggested that the ads were making the page overwide, I thought there was some sort of problem with either my computer or the bulletin board software.

If you are a Mozilla or NS6 user, there is a great little tool called BannerBlind that blocks out images and Flash at configurable sizes. I had checked it out a while back but didn't really use it until the VC adds started bugging me.

I'm striving to avoid ears (no skin ya see) and lack photo reference for the Queen in Phantom Menace ... so yer stuck with my Threepio impression.
