Are you sure that it's the ads? How do you know?

Most of the ads that I've seen in the last few months have been for Bing and that online game that a lot of people hate. Everybody knows the ads, the ones with the women in skimpy attire. I suppose it's possible that whatever computer you're using (mostly if it's a work machine) sees specific ads for the MMO as indicative that the website is... of an adult nature and thus doesn't allow it.

Alternatively, if you're using some Firefox or IE addon that blocks ads then maybe that has something to do with it.

i thought it might be something else, i use Avant browser...its pretty much firefox but nobody has heard of it, im not sure if its the browser or my anti-virus but its only when 2 of the ads are up....i cant remember which ones but they arent anything bad, i think a clothing company and something else, i just have to wait until the ad cycles out and i can get back on

get firefox and get the plug in Adblock Plus. It will make it so that ads don't show. Fixes everything. I got it after the last time there was an issue on this site.

This used to be a problem last summer, with a couple of specific ads. IIRC Brian got rid of those ads and there was much rejoicing.

I'd shoot him an email about it.
