Treasure Island Ad Has Got to Go

The Treasure Island ad, which opens up a big screen if you accidentally roll your mouse over it has got to go.

Everytime I go to hit the "view new posts" button, or worse, the "back arrow" on my browser, I'm faced with this monstrosity.

I don't mind ads, heck I've clicked through a few on occassion to see what they were about. But ads that ditract from my being able to use the site do not add value. They make me want to visit less. They make it a pain to contribute to the board. They have got to go.

Please ditch this ad!

I think the ads are ISP/region based. So we don't all get the same series.
Thankfully, I've never had the ones KP or Misanthrope are posting about.
But my month leading into Christmas was plagued with the 'hellllooooo' from a smiley collection ad. Please, I beg of you, no ads with sound.

I just updated the ad settings to block any ads that expand. If after an hour or so you keep getting expandable ads let me know.

Any other really bothersome ads also fill me in.
