OK, I don't want to say this too loudly because I don't want to jinx it.  I've waited 24 hours and am now cautiously optimistic.

I think the horrible bank ad is gone.

Wow, I hope it stays this way. 

I am curious what happened, what went so horribly wrong.  What was so heinous about that ad that it became such a problem?

I've been told that the bank ad has officially been hunted down and squashed! Smiley So sorry about all the annoyance that ad caused. And I hope it's really gone now! Cheesy

Aww. Thanks! I only wish we didn't have to show ads for banks at all! (No offense to people who work at banks. Cheesy)

Well, first off I think whoever designed the ad should have done it in a less obtrusive and annoying way.

And then the second part of the problem is this...

We try our darndest to sell all our ad space directly to craft-related advertisers (like the wonderful ads you see for Dremel, Klutz, Martha Stewart, Urban Threads, etc) and the rest of the ad space goes to various "ad networks" which fill the space with all kinds of other ads. We use something like 5 different ad networks and sometimes it's very hard to get them to take down an ad that we report as problematic. So the bottleneck with this kind of things is often getting the "ad network" to respond to us.

and they tend to have annoying ads too.
