Office depot ad on bf is a *****

I don't mind advertising on public forums. I know it pays for the sight. However, the Office Depot ad that explodes into a full screen popup is obnoxious. When you hit close, it just pops back up. Is there anything that can be done to change this ad's format?

$12 gets you a totally ad-free experience and entrance to the super exclusive and very fashionable Titanium Club.

Or you could install Ad-Block.

I just installed ad block, thanks for the advise. I was wondering what the titanium club was all about.

What's an ad?

(another vote for Ad-Block)

Install Adblock Plus.

Or if you are some goofy Opera user, install an appropriate urlfilter.ini from Fanboy's site down in the .nz.
