I know the ads help pay for the site, but I'm having an issue viewing the threads. The good ads on the right side of the page are too wide. They cover up part of the info in the thread. They cut into the thread if you know what I mean.

Anyone else have this problem?

I use IE8...so clearly it affects both.

Same for me on ie8, firefox, safari, and camino... I think it just has to do with the size of pictures. If the pictures size is larger than the default text frame it pushes the whole formating scheme off wich causes the ads ,which dont follow the same formating guidelines, to overlap everything on the entire page

Midnight said it.... I don't understand why people keep complaining. We've said how to fix it 14,821 times. Firefox browser with the Adblock Plus plug in. Heck if you need help, send me a message and I can talk you through it in email or on the phone. It's very simple and only take 3 minutes.

Ive only had it be a problem on threads where people post pics without using the My Pics function. It blows the whole thread too wide, and the text follows.

I can't use Firefox. I'm at work. They use IE8 here. I have no choice. And at home I use IE8 anyway. FF sucks, it's slow compared to IE8.

I'm at work too, We use IE too, but I haven't had any issues really. I just love being able to go into Buell-Land at work. I feel like such a sinner.

Thanks for the tip on the add blocker in FireFox. It works great and only took about 30 seconds to download, install, and restart FireFox. :D
