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.

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