Ads over text

I am getting some ads that appear over text. They appear to be misplaced on the page.

Re: Ads over text

Hey Jack,

Is this still occurring for you? I viewed the forum on Chrome but I could not reproduce the issue. Have you tried clearing your cache? It could help.

Still there

I will clear the cache as a last resort. It only happens on this site.

Re: Ads over text

Jack, the only real long-term way to fix these things is by finding the programmers who coded those ads, and then sending them on a Nantucket Sleighride. Leave one survivor, as a warning to the others.

Film the sleighride, sell the video to Fox, donate the money to a school for ethical programming.

Come on, give me a hand with loading this harpoon.

Re: Ads over text

I just found a link that says "Hide these ads" (I think). Click - gone.

It is just visible in the image I posted.
