Yes I really hate that one. You have to scroll down otherwise it nearly blinds you!

Yes, unfortunately it has been around a while. I always scramble to get it scrolled out of sight...

I know an epileptic woman who's seizures could be triggered by strobe lights... I'd love to see someone like her sue the pants off the people who created that banner.

i dont know if the flashing is intense enough to trigger a photosensitive epileptic seizure.. but maybe.

sadly there are probably a few people on wwworld that know just how effective that style of banner is in certain demographics. oh well.

Almost as bad as those "musical" banners that were on Yahoo! last year. Remember? I almost blew my speakers out.

Well... flashing lights give my mother migrane headaches, but that wouldn't make as dramatic a lawsuit.

I love redirecting all the ad servers to my localhost serving up a 1x1 pixel instead. Haven't seen that one in a while ;)
