    Is anyone else having this problem.

    Whenever I click on a new page and it is loading into the browser the cursor will relocate to the search box on the Bing advertisement. Sometimes this happens after I have scrolled down and when the cursor relocates to the search box it moves the whole page and I lose my place in what I was reading.

    Any suggestions on how to resolve this? Is there a setting I can change in IE or on my computer.

    Its getting to be annoying.

    Yea, stop using IE.

    I don't get the same ads though, so can't say I've seen the same ad.

    It's being fixed by Chris, RealJock admin. Within the next few hours the ads should no longer appear.

    And BTW it's a problem in Firefox too.

    Since mickeytopogigio has mentioned that this issue is being addressed by Chris, the admin., HAS ANYONE ELSE NOTICED THE ADS THAT HAVE BEEN SHOWING UP FROM CAFEPRESS.COM? icon_eek.gificon_eek.gificon_eek.gif

    WHAT THE BLOODY FUCK IS THAT ALL ABOUT?!!!!! Why is that being shown on this site?!?! It's outrageous! icon_mad.gif

    Neither party should be allowed to advertise on here. Yes, we argue and debate politics here amoungst ourselves. But this is bullshit. icon_exclaim.gif

    It's a google ad. It's prompted by the tag words associated with the discussions we have.

    +1. Every time I see someone complain about ads, I always think to myself, "when's the last time you even saw an ad"? icon_smile.gif

    Don't ads help pay for sites that use them though like Realjock? Blocking ads reduces the support for the site then right?
