popup flash advertisements Answered

I know instructables needs advertisements to stay afloat, and I'm fine with that.  But that popup flash-ad for san luca, from rovion.com is horrible.  I mean god awful.  It's the type of thing that drives people away from websites, and causes them to install flash-blockers and ad-blockers.

When we do that, instructables doesn't get ad revenue, and that's bad.

So please, for the love of God, Bob, Steve, or whoever your deity is, get rid of them, so we can support your site by seeing the normal adds, and even clicking on them occasionally.

Yeah, I'd like to echo this comment. Those ads are loud and annoying, and the acting is bad. Maybe if they didn't jump in front of the page content they wouldn't be as bad.
