Ads cropping upFollow

Been getting banner ads today on the forums, with a couple pop-ups. It's as if the forums sometimes don't notice I'm premium as the "Welcome Jophiel" gets replaced by a banner for the History Channel or some such. I'm assuming it's part of the general loopiness of the overloaded servers lately. Doing a forced refresh of the page usually fixes the issue.

I know all about scumware and the rest of it. My computer here at work isn't supposed to be downloading anything without warning me, but who knows. Still, haven't seen ads on any other site I've been on so I'm thinking it's an issue with the site and not my computer.

Follow up: Ran AdAware (latest version) and got nothing but the usual host of tracking cookies. No scumware or anything. And I'm staring at a Verison banner ad even as I type this.

The ad server blew up, and stopped recognizing logins..

fixed. I think I'm monitoring it. and more importantly tryng to add code that detects when somethign died (since it keeps finding new and interesting ways to die) to shut off all ads.
