    I've noticed recently that there are ads that have replaced the o2 ones on the frontpage. However, I don't think they are suitable for this forum unless the admins want to promote gambling to under-18's. :p

    The ad in question would be the ones under the headline box not the skyscraper ad on the right hand side.

    really? How about a screen shot or something? Maybe even get a trace of where they are being popped up/under from?

    Yeah, I know. But the ads show up every once in a while. I think EP noticed this issue the other day when he had the o2 ad on there.

    Henyman firefox may be blocking the adverts, are you using the adblock extension or usercontent.css blocking?

    No, I don't think it's got anything to do with ad blocker. The ads just show up whenever they want to, or so it seems.
    I can't see the ads everytime I load the OSNN frontpage, but it does show up after a few refreshes.
