Immovable Ads on the DK site

Today, for the first time, I am finding ads covering stories. They appear to be immovable -- there is no way to make them go away. There is no x button to close them out nor can they be moved to another part of the page. Why are these ads obscuring DK content?

    Is it possible for you to get a screen capture of the situation? It likely depends on the specific ads going to you.

    I find the same thing with ads covering the first 4 or 5 posts on diaries. Hopefully they can fix this glitch.

    A screen shot or a description of the ads would help, if one of you can get that for me. Also, does it matter if you stretch your window open wider?

    This appears to have been a one time problem. Probably connected to the
    computer I was using at the time. On subsequent visits to DK site in the
    last couple of days, ads now appear between content -- not on it -- on
    either computer I'm using. So all's well that end's well.

    Thanks for support!

    I also had this problem. I had to turn off active scripting to get rid of the ads over the headlines on the front page. I'm running XP SP3 with IE 8.0.6, which is apparently the most updated version supported by XP. I've had a similar issue with one other site, and had to turn off scripting as well.
