between 2 pages i just got 3 talking and moving ads.  one was for wal*mart, one was for a nintendo wii, and i don't even know what the other one was for, but it shook and made a weird chirping noise. 
i took some screenshots, not sure how well they'll show up though:

It's still up there.  Thanks for trying so hard to fix it, but the ones that have already been listed still have not been blocked.  I found these just in the past few minutes:




The ones I've clicked on so far have taken me to:
www.protectmarriage.com/ballot/
www.protectmarriage.com/schools/

Is there a way that you could block ads from this website and all of its subsidiary pages (i.e. anything that originates from www.protectmarriage.com/whatever/)

This whole thing really upsets me because it seems to have taken over the entire website.  Literally every craftster page I've seen today has had one or more of these Yes on Prop 8 ads.

Puppy_girl, you may very well have some malware taking over your ads. We don't show any talking ads and we don't show any pop-up ads. You should check your 'puter. Sad

I'm not sure why the block I put in place didn't work so just to be safe I changed our Google AdSense settings to "text ads only" figuring that this is an image ad so this should really put a stop to this ad (I hope!).

Now I see this at the top right:



And actually when I went to Picture Hosting the picture ad popped up in that spot. I see this on the left side:



And there's the smaller text-only "Ads by Google" area on the bottom left and bottom center when I scroll all the way down.

Here's a new error message I've gotten a couple of times that says "DNS failure"...



There doesn't seem to be any pattern to it like the other one that comes up around 11:00 p.m. or so. (see below)



I use Mozilla's Firefox browser if that helps any.

I found a chili's advertisment that seemed like a popup. It expands and flashes in two loctions, blocking craftster's own links and stuff. And I can't click the close button on the ad to shrink it (I'm using firefox). Since it's not crafty related, thought the mods might want to know about it. Please delete this post once it's fixed. Thank you!!  Smiley

Um yes, that's why I came to this thread actually. My stepmom and uncle have both been diagnosed with cancer in the last year. My stepmom, most recently. The last thing I want blasted in my face is gigantic, obnoxious cancer center ads. I'm not trying to be a jerk, but it's actually becoming painful everytime I come on to my favorite website in the world!

They do actually mess up though. The drop down menu is behind the ad.

Whoa. I just got the biggest ad I've ever had freeze up my screen on here. This one is crazy huge!  Shocked



Plus, it doesn't go away when you roll off of it and it covers up every toolbar. Smiley

i've noticed this ad showing up from time to time:

i'm not even 100% sure what it's for...i didn't realize divorce was an entity that could pay for advertising.  anyway, it just seems a bit shady to me, since you have no idea where you're going to end up if you click on it.  the website i got when i rolled over it wasn't much help.

I've been seeing this ad.



 Kidding! Grin You know some of you drank some, and we know who you are!


Seriously though, the ads that I'm seeing are mostly Google ads. I've seen a couple Flash, but nothing real annoying.
