    When I went to the MacRumors front page I got an ad that covered up the top article. I took a screenshot and attached it.

    Yes - I'm noticing these too. They automatically pop up when you mouse over them, and stay open unless you click to close them. Very annoying.

    MacRumors: Can these be changed/removed? You guys are usually pretty good when it comes to unobtrusive ads...

    Thanks!

    I think there is already a thread on this, Arn tries to get rid of it when they pop up.

    I got this one too. It looks like its supposed to be clicked on to make it full size yet some how it got fullsize without me clicking on it.
