I do appreciate that there have to be some ads on these forums, and I also admit that the amount of space that they take is reduced and they have to make the most of it.
However, when I'm writing a message, I find those blinking ads quite distracting and a real strain on my eyes.
Of course the aim is to attract attention, but it has the reverse effect on me. I can't be the only one.
I thought it was commonly admitted that the netiquette is against anything blinking/flashing on a website?
Can we do something to make those ads less obtrusive?
