Do you see ads every time, or do you see blank spaces a lot?

Doing a little research on my new ad server. Please indulge me if you will by taking a second to answer this poll.

Once in awhile, at the top I see a black blank ad space with a spinning graphic over it. You can click on the X in the upper left corner and then the ad space becomes transparent to the background. When it's "spinning" it seems to tie up any keystrokes you're making at the time. I have already voted that I didn't see any blank ads. My mistake.

The right side ad is blank as I reply now, and was also blank when I peeked at the poll totals page.

Todays Post and in the threads I see the ad is on the side

Sometimes they take a little while to load but I never have blanks after a few seconds.

I get that same spinning semi-loaded ad that Augie gets.


On an unrelated note--I've been trying to start a group PA RAIDER NATION....I have some pics in an album (this must be done first--according to instructions)--but it will not add to the group. (supposed to be self-optimizing)

Also can't add any discussion ----all I have accomplished is a group avatar.

Duh...there's a link under the discussion group to start a new discussion. It's hard to see because of the new background I put up...

I went to ebay earlier today for the first time in forever to purchase an item for my car. Now I'm seeing Ebay adverts on here.

So, I'll guess it's working on trying to sell me more stuff. I hate it, but I did turn my AdBlock off for this site.

Must say that since I voted I've not seen any blank ads.
