Default The buggy \"click here\" ad

It seems to be a rather severe rendering error with this ad on my computer. Please fix it or make it removable or something. It just sticks there covering up a big portion of the screen.

Here is a screenshot:


I'm running Firefox 2.0.0.12 on Fedora Core 8.

Thank you in advance.

Ok, I removed it myself with noscript not allowing shrapnelgames.com but still www.shrapnelcommunity.com. But now I'll miss out on good deals.

Slight rant (please forgive me):
I HATE FLASH CONTENT.
End Rant

Thank you for indulging me.

Edit:
Just wanted to add that I am also running Firefox and use flash block to combat flash graphics, but I still end up seeing a huge flash block in the center of the screen for a second while the flash content downloads prior to popping into position in the corner. Very annoying.

It is fairly awful.

Actually it is so out-of-place looking that at first I thought it was some kind of adware or something. Being as I'm running Linux I thought maybe I'd been hacked!

Yeah, that ad is pretty hideous and annoying. It's a shame when good sites put up ads that are so bad it actually motivates you to disable parts of the site to avoid them.

Yes, yes, I also use it, but on some pages I actually want all the content like on this one (until now).

I hadn't even noticed the ad before. It's looks good for me, but it must be very annoying.
