Paul,

There's an green banner ad loading on most forum pages at the top that seems to be doing some anti-social javascript. It's reloading every 10 secs or so and when this happens, the page jumps up to the add is if in a "index.html#ref1" type link. Clearly intentional as it's results in the advert being seen by the user.

It's hard to read anything past the first screenful of text when the page keeps jumping up! :evil:

Advert reads: "You have been awarded a free polyphonic ringtone" and has that peroxide blonde thing that used to be in that band. :)

Guess it's time to install the Firefox adblock plugins... :twisted:

I think they probably caught it themselves, not seen anything like it lately. Worth a mention though, make sure they are aware of how annoying it was and not to let it happen again!
