It's almost as bad as Microsoft's ActiveTrojan, IMO. IMO it's Evil, and I utterly detest it.

|SeaFever2000||I have seen this problem from a few months and have messaged Sailnet Admin with no response. If the solution being proposed is 'turning off Flash' that is not a good solution. It is a work around at best. In my humble opinion the Sailnet website needs to be fixed and should not allow the Ads to be 'in front of' the menu items - in this case 'New Posts and its drop down menu'. This is Sailnet real estate and should not be covered by the Ads.|

I appreciate your concerns and all the help you and the other mods have done for me.
I also know you (mods) can only suggest things to the Admin or owners (if there is a difference).
But it is the ads (and maybe other things) that have made lots of things on this site difficult to get around in.
That is driving people away.

|tdw||hmmmm,.....I thought that had been fixed. Was a problem a month or so back but for me at least it has gone away.|

"New Posts" drop down menu blocked by advertisements
I often like to use the "New Posts" drop down and select "New Posts - no politics/off topic" just to see what the latest topics are.
Recently, however, the banner ad at the top of the page stays in front of the drop down box. When I click on the drop-down box arrow next to "New Posts", the drop down box drops down BEHIND the ad.
Which means it's totally useless and I can't click on the option I want.
Some ad don't do it, but most do. I'm supposing those ads are coded to always be on top - but that interferes with a key functionality of this site (at least to me).
