Re: all these flashing ads

Turn off Javascript and/or plugins in your browser and *many* display problems go away, and pages load faster, too. It's easy enough to turn them back on to watch a video or something if you want.

Re: all these flashing ads

If you're using Firefox, there's also a great program (free) NoScript. It stops any website from writing nasty tracking or annoying/malicious scripts to your HD.

+1 on disabling Javascript which is a portal for all kinds of intrusive garbage.
