Dear god! This thing almost gave me a seizure, I nominate this thing to be the worst advert banner ever ... unless anyone can find something worse (yes, that's a challenge ;))

Just for reference, it's probably going to flash slower when you view it, Safari and Opera are the only browsers I know that play gifs at their real speed... it goes ****ing nuts here

The 'Shoot teh monkeh' banners. Fun, until you hit teh monkeh.
I remember surfing a vague, russian site, looking for *cough*stuff*cough*, then all of a sudden a fullscreen (!) flash (literarly) image popped up. Because it was very graphical (meaning that it was filed with graphical details), and thus huge in bytesize, my computer slowed down, didn't respond to alt+f4, and meanwhile the flashy image was flashing its guts out.

Ouch mine eyes! *runs around blinded*
That's piss poor SPeedY. I've not seen that many bad banners recently,
(usually cos I block 'em heh)
But has anyone seen those popups that look like they were a generated Win95 error.
Bleh!...what are they thinking?.
Oh I see, if I look like i'm really struggling, people will feel pathos,
and buy my products? :p

damn, I can't see the banner, as it turns out, when I click on the link, it thinks my computer is infected with something and I should click to make sure I'm not, but I cannot even click it, probably BECAUSE i'm infected...

this is horrible...

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
