Not causing a problem as such, just a nuisance...usinf Firefox, I've blocked it in ABP [block element]...totally sick of ads on here tbh. Just need to work out how to block these stupid surveys next.

Surveys now blocked, same methodology as above.

As Gordon has said use Adblocplus free version. Instal it and then click on "block element" mouse over the ad or survey until it highlights then click it and then click add in the window.
