Why must you continue to be an asshole?
Im just going to end this 'argument' now, even though it had no real intention in the first place.
Oh, by the way.
My original typo that caused this whole argument was spelt 'sarcasim'.
Not sarcaism like you were spelling it.
Maybe before you start mocking somebody, you should do so before making yourself look like a complete ass.

Ha ha ha, what a hilarious and utterly idiotic exchange. Obviously he was making fun of the mispelling of sarcasm, that wasn't seen by the person who mispelled it. It's funny when people don't get things :p

Anyway, back on track... I'm happy to hear that something will be done about them. They weren't all that bothersome since I was still able to play my movies fine (I didn't get any of the large banners), but it was annoying since my pop-up blocker could do nothing against those banners.

I should start mocking somebody before I start mocking somebody? ok. </scarsasm>

Those ads kicked ass. I liked how they were all crafty and such, getting past the firefox popup blocker by making it part of the actual page, and re-appearing no matter how much I adblocked them.

Crafty...

The funniest ad this week was :
"this offer is not avalible in Japan"
"close window"
I know this doesn't apply to everyone but I thought it was funny and pointless.

We don't want ads like this on NG either - the ad company has been notified and it will be gone by the end of today.

yeah the javascript ad right? it really pissed me off but i wasnt going to say anything because im sure you have enough to do already but since someone already did i have to thank you for removing it

I hope it's those pesky AIM ones that pop up in the middle of the screen. Any popups gone is good, though.
