    I voted for Saddam since my first choice was not listed. It's the ad that would create a pop-up everytime you ran your mouse across it.
    Try not.
    Do or do not.
    There is no try.

    I've never seen the Sadam banner & feel that I'm missing out on something. Can someone post me screenshot?

    Without seeing the Sadam banner, I vote for the WINNER! Drives me insane.

    The flashing winner is the worst, drives me nuts! Especially when it ends up on the right or left of the screen since then I can't scroll down to get rid of it... grrrr!!!! The Saddam one is pretty bad too...

    None of the above. I vote for the macromedia or the cartoon one that blocks the board itself.

    What the hell browsers are you people using? This sounds like really horrible stuff for your browser to be allowing. That winner one is annoying by I voted for the virus... it moves so I notice it. I dont get the Sadam banner here.

    To stop the saddam ad I just shoot the damn thing at his head. Some popups come up but I have my NoAds program set to block them, so it does literally nothing. It's actually quite entertaining when that lil' rascal tries to escape me

    I still voted it most annoying, though.

    Ive never seen the Saddam one. The mosta nnoying is the dumb Java one which has a popus when you place your mouse over it. I voted for the virus warning one: I feel as if its insulting my ability to run a firewall and antivirus app.

    AFAIK Davros, the Saddam banner only seems to appear in the States - it's localized pain, not globalized.

    Anyways - my vote goes to one that's not listed - the one that's a group of racing lights - it's got sound so terrible I thought my speakers were dying the first time it loaded.

    Then I'll never get to see it, unless someone posts a screen a shot.

    If no one is going to do that, then please stop talking about the Saddam banner, so I don't feel I'm missing out.
