Hey KD, this isn't life or death, but there is an ad that I get for a German site/company called "Level R". As it's German, I doubt that you Yanks are seeing it, but everytime I enter your site, it plays a sound effect of a revving engine, and it repeats it every time I click into or out of  a subforum (when that ad is the one displayed, of course). I remembered you writing that you could take certain ads out of the queue, is that right? If so, I would appreciate this one being removed. If it can't be done, then it's not a big deal, just thought that I'd ask. Thanks!

Sound?  Yea, I'll kill that this evening.  No sound, period.  I'll pull the ads altogether and just rely on the community before I'll run ads with sound.

I've added a custom filter to block levelr.gamigo.de  ( I believe that is the site in question? Looks like a German racing site)    It should take effect in a few hours.  Let me know if you see it again.

R&P just played host to The God Who Wasn't There.  Doesn't bother me much, but I figure I would bring it to attention.  Don't know what your criteria is, but I'm sure someone's not going to like it.

Hey if people can have avatars here that piss off Muslims, what does it matter if there is an atheist ad? (Guessing that is what it is.)
