    That winner ad

    That so has to go. I was trying to write a post at the C++ board, but it's just so damn annoying.

    Yeah... new big winner ad.... new flashy casino on net ad... new big YOU WON! ad.... I'm tellin' you, if there's ever a period during the week when I don't post for awhile... the banners got me! GAAHHhhhhhhhhhh


    [edit 1]I write this as the You Won! ad tries to erase my final shred of sanity... I just noticed a Congratulations banner, much like the smaller Winner one, except that the text that says "If this is flashing, you're a winner!" doesn't evne sit still - it jumps all over the place!

    I've also typed this whole thing staring directly at the keyboard, so the banner doesn't kill me... (sure, I know I could hit stop - lemme alone)

    can you hear that?? off in the distance... I hear cries of "DOWN WITH THE EVIL ADVERTISER PEOPLE AND THEIR DESIGN TEAMS... and the webmasters that accept their ads"..

    ok, so I might have added the last part... but I swear I heard at least the first part..

    Oh my God! I didn't think of that!

    AAAAAAA! as we speak the jumping "Congratulations ad is right in my face. Augh!! I haven't gotten a normal ad yet!! I got the small flashy winner one 2 times in a row, then the big flashy winner one, then he small one, then the new "you won!" one about 4 times, now I have the jumpy "Congratualions!" one. AAAAAA!!!! Where did the normal, non-flashy ones go?? I miss the "Warninng:" one about consulting!!! AAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!

    edit1: as soon as I wrote that, I clicked reply and got the consulting one, I hit edit to put this in here and now I have the little winner one!! NOOOOOO!!!!
