What is with the flashing add on this site?

By dkeefe ·
As I am looking at this, site there is a constant flash of something. I think it is some kind of subliminal ad, popping up it?s frequency is quite annoying, I cant believe this will help anyone. It's breaks concentration, it may be borderline illegal. It could also be a security threat, imbed a virus or spy ware, this should not be allowed!

Try using a different web browser.

Clip ?

Are you talking about the macromedia clip that just hovers over the "Home, Articles, Downloads, Forums....." menu tab? If yes, I do see that too. It just pops up.

I see no flash or flashing at all, however

on the initial forums page there is a little script that switches between four threads.

I use FireFox and have the AdBlocker turned on, so I don't see any of the adds at all. I don't miss them as I can't utilise those USA discounts in Australia.

I think you have identified the source of this man's problem. If his web browser isn't displaying the four featured stories properly he might see that as a flash every five seconds or so.
