    Those ads are sooo annoying, the instant you mouse over the ad a long extension occurs and it is really distracting. Can you please get rid of these ads from your ad rotation?

    The code for the ad appears to be:

    Code:
    <div id="OUTER_DIV_43967_1_1255192376047" style="position: relative; z-index: 1000000;"><img id="EXPANDO_PLACEHOLDER_43967_1_1255192376047" src="http://m1.2mdn.net/dot.gif" style="visibility: hidden;" alt="" height="90" width="728" border="0"><div id="DIV_43967_1_1255192376047" style="position: absolute; top: 0px; left: 0px; visibility: visible; z-index: 1000000; text-align: left; clip: rect(0px, 728px, 90px, 0px);"><embed style="width: 728px; height: 90px; margin-left: 0px; margin-top: 0px;" id="FLASH_43967_1_1255192376047" name="FLASH_43967_1_1255192376047" src="http://m1.2mdn.net/2412849/PID_1102947_728x90_parent.swf" quality="high" wmode="Transparent" salign="T" onmouseover="dartCreativeDisplayManagers['GlobalTemplate_12517404768181255192376046'].onMouseOver('43967_1_1255192376047');" onmouseout="dartCreativeDisplayManagers['GlobalTemplate_12517404768181255192376046'].onMouseOut('43967_1_1255192376047');" flashvars="src=2412849&rv=1&rid=33162110&click=http%3A//ad.doubleclick.net/click%253Bh%3Dv8/38c2/3/0/%252a/n%253B217593507%253B0-0%253B0%253B40649399%253B3454-728/90%253B33144233/33162110/1%253Bu%253Dcm-22343283_1255192375%252C1101c7484f8999b%252CMiscellaneous%252Ccm.gadg-cm.gadg_M-cm.AN_ed-cm.games-cm.games_L-an.12%253B%257Eaopt%253D0/ff/41/ff%253B%257Efdr%253D217502459%253B0-0%253B0%253B41389196%253B3454-728/90%253B33154493/33172370/1%253Bu%253Dcm-22343283_1255192375%252C1101c7484f8999b%252CMiscellaneous%252Ccm.gadg-cm.gadg_M-cm.AN_ed-cm.games-cm.games_L-an.12%253B%257Eokv%253D%253Bnet%253Dcm%253Bu%253Dcm-22343283_1255192375%252C1101c7484f8999b%252CMiscellaneous%252Ccm.gadg-cm.gadg_M-cm.AN_ed-cm.games-cm.games_L-an.12%253B%253Bord1%253D107043%253Bsz%253D728x90%253Bcontx%253DMiscellaneous%253Bbtg%253Dcm.gadg%253Bbtg%253Dcm.gadg_M%253Bbtg%253Dcm.AN_ed%253Bbtg%253Dcm.games%253Bbtg%253Dcm.games_L%253Bbtg%253Dan.12%253B%257Eaopt%253D3/1/41/0%253B%257Esscs%253D%253f&clickN=&rid=33162110&assets=728x90_child.swf%3Dhttp%253A//m1.2mdn.net/2412849/PID_1102947_728x90_child.swf&vcData=&exitEvents=name%3AExpanded%2520Click-Through%2Curl%3Ahttp%253A//www.ljsilvers.com/%2Ctarget%3A_blank%7BDELIM%7Dname%3ACollapsed%2520Click-Through%2Curl%3Ahttp%253A//www.ljsilvers.com/%2Ctarget%3A_blank&googleDiscoveryUrl=http%3A//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/ads%3Fclient%3Ddclk-3pas-query%26output%3Dxml%26geo%3Dtrue&adSiteUrl=http%3A//www.macrumors.com/&isGCNAd=false&JS=0&varName=43967_1_1255192376047&td=www.macrumors.com&assetType=Expanding&expEnv=basic&td=www.macrumors.com&wmode=Transparent&scaleMode=noScale&br=ff&os=mac&isFlashFullScreenEnabled=false" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" height="90px" width="728px"></div></div>

    Screen shots are nice. Also contributors are free of those ads, I mean if it matters to you that much.

    As jessica. says, we'd appreciate having a screenshot. It helps our process for having them removed.

    These are new google ads that are staring to pop up on many sites. They expand out when you put your mouse over them. I have noticed them on a few sites and to be honest, it sucks. I know that ads are a vital part of some sites, but it will drive folks away if that starts happening. That being said, I am not sure there is much that the admins can do about them as google feeds them up.

    I'll try and post a screenshot the next time I see the ad. Of course, once I made this thread I haven't seen the ad since.

    After contributing are the ads gone forever or is it only like an annual thing?

    It's an annual thing, but $25 is a small price to pay for no ads and you get access to the private forums.

    Details can be found here

    The ad should be removed soon, if it isn't already.

    Long John Silvers is still around? ;)

    The only one that I know of in my city closed a while ago and was recently replaced by Coffee Culture.
