Is MacRumors running this ad?!

Is MacRumors running these type of ads? I'm worried because this is the first time I've seen such an obtrusive ad suddenly pop up with a fade effect. I hope I don't have malware or something. WOuld appreciate some confirmation on this please!

Looks that way!

(although knowing Arn, I'm pretty sure it's only because he doesn't realize it, and they'll be gone soon... I hope!)

Seeing about turning them off.

It's not malware. Just an intrusive ad.
