What ad revolver? And what OS and browser are you using?

(Ever heard of a .hosts file? That will fix it right up.)

I see Ad Revolver when I clean up my mess occasionally. Haven't been directed anywhere by it though. Unless that's what keeps sending me here.

If your popup-blocker isn't enabled, and you have your browser set to "re-use the same window", it's possible that some ads might direct you away from MO automagically.............

Why aren't you using Firefox dude? It's much better then Microcrap's internet exploder. (hic) I'd offer you a glass of Scorpion Pale Ale but it'd be flat before it got to you.

Sachi, The "hosts" file is really handy if you don't have a DNS server and you need to connect to a system by machine name rather than by IP address. Not sure what good that's going to do for me since I can't do a thing with this site's backend. (BTW, it's fine now, so whatever was broken is fixed now).

Snarli, just 'cause we're quoting you in our sig lines, don't go thinking you're all smart and stuff. I like Microsoft, I like conformity and interoperability in my computers, I ain't installing no firefrickinfox or yomamazilla, and I ain't buying no pinko commie fu<king Apple computer. But I will take your beer, if it's drinkable warm. Damn it's hot down here, I was soaked with sweat after the ride to work at 7 am!

A .hosts file can be used to block ad servers by directing all such html calls to a non-existent page. If you have this kind of .hosts file installed, the rotating ad would not show up at all. Your browser would either show a white block where the ad normally was, or would say "page not found" or the like.
