Is this permanent?

The plane banner thingy, its flipping awful. Every time my mouse so much as go nears it a new tab opens with the adverts jobs link. I dont mind advertising but this is too big and too distracting. Is it here to stay?

Yep I'm with BengaLover on this, those side banners are really irritating. They make scrolling a pain in the ass, there are two side banners on the left hand side alone now ffs.

They're making my eyes bleed, I agree with that, but they're not opening any new tabs unless I intentionally click on them. What browser are you using Benga?

If using Firefox or Chrome I suggest using Ad block plus(beta). it is very good for pc and laptop but sadly not available to me using the normal safari browser on my ipad

Ok I have good new and bad news...

Good news is it's not here to stay, bad news is you will have to endure it for another 2 days . It shouldn't open everytime you hover over it though.

Thanks for your patience, and if you know anyone looking for a job, please let them know

They are indeed VERY annoying!! I'm usually quite immune to these things but these are extremely intrusive, a very bad idea, probably best to shoot whoever thought they'd do anything other than make people cross.

Did it work?

I though adblock only worked on flash content, this ain't flash based.

Have to say I agree with the sentiment being posted on here, those banner ads are atrocious.

Someone should be taken around the back of the building and given a bullet to the nape of the neck!
