    The "Take Saddam Out" banner...

    First of all I cannot stand it. It is so stupid and that kind of crap ignorant americans embrace.. "Hey look, I am freakin stupid, lets take out Saddam... Come on John-Boy, it will be a riot."

    Thats not why I am writing this though, does anybody else's mouse pointer disappear when that banner is running? I am running Win2000 and it is very annoying, though it does affect me too much. I just hate it. Anyway to get my mouse from disappearing?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hmmmm I just found the same thing...that is strangs, I'll pass it along to the web master.....

    of course what I find particuarlly appaulling about this ad is what happens when you click on it...you get Bush selling a product. No one should use the president to promote their product without his consent.

    Oh, so that's what it is. I've been assuming it's a new (and one that's not useful) feature on the boards. When you don't move the mouse, it disappears so you can read the messages without it obstructing your view.
    Try not.
    Do or do not.
    There is no try.

    Hah - same here. Never made the correlation (since the damned ad runs constantly)
