anyone seen this new one on the top of the page yet?  it's full of flashing colors and annoying sounds that just keep going as long as you have the page open...i had to mute my speakers just to read the forums today.  there's another variant where it says "Shoot the Enemy" and you see a little soldier, but that one doesn't make any noise.  having multiple tabs open, all of them with someone yelling as they throw punches at you, is pretty damn annoying though...

I sent them a batch of ones I want removed immediately.  I'm having Dave put the Splinter Cell ad back up in the mean time when he has the chance.  This ad agency is frustrating me to no end...

Worst part is, hitting him inside the ad doesn't do anything.  He is immortal.  Teh cheat.

Ad should be reverted now.  Or is that reverted from the reversion?
