Banner ads blocking first post

Recently I have been seeing ads for Sams Club that block the first post or even this groups name in the home page. There is no way to click on a box to delete it. Even clicking on it and opening another page with its ad doesn't make it go away. It makes the first post or group unusable.

Please fix this.

David

If you can get the url for the particular ad it will help Janet greatly.

OK, it happens at random like all AdSense ads but next time I see it I will click on it, copy the url and post it below.

Ironically, this had never happened to me before until I clicked on this thread! In fact, it blocked the first two posts on mine. What are the odds?

Anyway, I just did a refresh of the page and it went away. Hasn't happened again since. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I'm not seeing it either but that doesn't mean it isn't happening. If you can get the url of the ad and perhaps a screen shot it would help immensely to trouble shoot the issue.

No, ours appear at the top, centre and right top corner. Mine on Safari do anyway.

Sorry Al, I hit edit instead of quote and posted this in your comment first time, hence the edit.

OK, here is the URL of a banner ad that blocked the first thread in a New Post listing: Madden Girl Templee Embellished Sandal White

It wasn't Sams Club this time, it was Famous Footware.
