Troubles accessing Sailnet from smartphones

I sometimes follow my Sailnet subscribed threads on my Blackberry. A few days ago Sailnet pages stopped loading properly. I'll see the page for a few seconds while it's loading, but once the progress bar gets near the end the page suddenly goes blank on my phone. This happens when using Opera Mini (versions 4 and 6), as well as the default Blackberry browser, which sometimes also gives a "page error" message.

After trying to debug this for several days, I have come to the conclusion that there is a new ad banner that is crashing the mobile browsers as soon as it loads. I'd appreciate it if someone could look into this.

Is anyone else having similar problems with their smartphone browsers?
