Pro users receiving banner ads?

For a long while, the only ads I was seeing on Instructables pages were internal -- mostly examples of highly rated/featured I'bles, or contest announcements.

Starting today (24 Mar 2010), I am seeing banner and sidebar ads.  This isn't a big deal, except that a lot of them have been those really annoying rollover-giant-box type.  This makes it quite cumbersome to navigate on the page, and in particular, to do anything where your mouse has to go near the masthead.

BUMP RE-BUMP.  This is weird!  The most recently uploaded Instructable, "Trash Rocks" causes me to see banner ads.  If I back out of that I'ble, then go and reload other tabs, the banner ads disappear and are replaced by the usual I'bles internals.

As noted in a reply to Eric above, we are now (Jessy, Nacho, and myself, at least) are getting sidebar ads on I'bles, forum topics, and the forums summary page.

 I am getting a set of verizon ads right now. I also had a few drop-down ads earlier.

I'm only seeing internal ads.

 It is fixed now, I am getting the internal ones now
I am not having the problem anymore either...
Me too. Banners and sidebars on some pages, just sidebars on others.
Fixed now?

Looks like it.  As of 2:30, Cloude reported a fix which I confirmed.  Hopefully the two irate users are also less annoyed.

Should be fixed now.
