I'm betting it's your computer/web browser. Nothing like that on either of my screens using Google Chrome.

IE 7 is a bit obsolete...you might want to upgrade to IE9 or Chrome. Lots of sites are not compatible w/ IE 7.

I've been seeing them for a couple of days now. I've been assuming Gregg is allowing this to help pay the cost of running the forum. As I say I'm assuming only.

I figured out why I don't see it. I have that whole right side column collapsed. I don't want to take up space with birthdays, calendar, etc... so I just turn that whole column off.

Ah..I never see the right side content because I usually only navigate via 'View New Content'....don't see the right side in that view.

Just to keep with the list to figure out what's going on, I get no adds and use the latest Firefox. It would be helpful to see a screen shot of what it is but, I'd NEVER ask George to provide that! :D

A simple click on the little X in the upper right hand corner of the box and it disappears, like a magic! ;)

Some of you guys are seeing all the stuff on the right, like this:

But I click the little X to get rid of all that clutter. Here's what I see:

Just like Mike said... once click and all that stuff disappears.
