    I haven't ever encountered an ad like that on osnn. That's weird.

    Adverts are target based, therefore people in one area/country will see different ads to those in another.

    The shopzilla.com one is on Adsense ElectronicPunk, filter it if you want, however, the problem Venom is talking about has nothing to do with the ad, and everything to do with his browser doing layers wrong.

    http://pagead2.googlesyndication.co...xpml?rf=bgl014&client=ca-pub-1159999859830405

    Is the link to where the add leads, all you need to do to block it using adsense is to add shopzilla.com to the blocked list.

    Attached are two screenshots from two different browsers. The ad does not go over the drop down menu's.

    Strange as google ads would normally show still show ads by google, but i will blacklist it.

    If you see any more of these ads and can provide feedback to google, please also submit it to them as I am sure google don't like it either!

    There is a difference between the image ones, and the flash ones. The flash ones don't show ads by google at the bottom, I noticed my mistake in the two screenshots after I had posted them. However the same effect still applies, it opens over the ad perfectly.
