Ads seem to be blocking a large portion of the text in the first post......

I have the same 'issue'. I think it is to 'encourage' us to get a 'premium' membership?

I have occasionally had problems, but not lateley. My workaround to the issue was to copy the post obscured by the ad and paste it into a word processing program. Hope it helps.

I don't have issues with the ads on the first post. It seems to correctly change the margins so no text is lost. (I use Mozilla, in case that makes a difference)

My beef is a bit different. Every once in a while photos or other margin changes in ome post will reset the width of the entire thread, making me have to scroll right and left to read it. (Usually, I just give up)

Premium membership. I gain so much information from this site, it is worth if for me to kick in a pittance to help out.

Most things can be easily explained without attributing it to some spirits of the afterlife. I would be skeptical of anyone claiming to have special powers or calling themselves a "medium".
Oh wait. You said "posts".
Nevermind.

One of the mods said to upgrade to IE8 (although no other site I use has no problems with IE6).....I did and the problem went away....

Not sure where the sign up is, but it is $12 per year or $20 for 2 years. Actually the red star is the old membership that was $25. The new membership is a yellow jersey.
