Like this forum.

When you open this PressF1 website, the ads are displayed for 2-5sec before the body (messages) are displayed.

I realise Ads pay to keep this site running, this site is way better than another I visit, where ads are diasplayed for nearly 10sec everytime you hit a Forum link, then another 10sec when you switch back to the Forum index http://forums.bicycling.com/eve

What ads? I never see any...:D

Firefox - XP Firewall - Linksys BEFS41 - AdAware - Spybot S&D - SpywareBlaster - AVG Free all seem to keep them at bay.

I get a Red X in the right column over there -> in what MAY be an adbox...but nothing's showing.

Im using IE6 0 2900 2180 with Tab browsing.

Ive seen the writeups and tried IE7, didnt like the miniscule buttons though, and played up so I removed it.

Would like the Shrink to Fit feature for printing Website pages, didnt know it was there to try.

If you watch the bottom status line when you enter this site you will see a call to the doubleclick.com(?) site. That's where the external sponsoring advertisments come from. That call is very early in the code. The righthand advertising column is Fairfax/PCWorld's so it's likely to be part of the page code.
