Let me look into that... bare with me, I have to use Italian skills to figure this out, while I enjoy the opportunity to do so, give me some time...

ok, I finally got rid of my ads... shit, it took a lot of playing around.

First, you need to make sure you use Firefox, and you DL both addblock plus and the element hider for it.

Then, make sure you enable addblock+ on this site, but then use the element hider to hide. Select it from the addblock+ drop down menu, then go to one of the adds... press w (wider) until it shows that you have selected the "center" portion, and then press the left mouse button. That should do it. It did it for me. Center!!! Not anything else.

I did something similar for the adds at the bottom.

Wow, somehow my work computer is blocking them even though it is IE...

Anyhow, for those who can, use Firefox, get adblock plus for it, and they will go away.

This lost the hell out of me. I guess the ads don't really bother me but I thought I'd give the Adblock a try and I see no Drop down menu with a hider element or any such animal.

element hider is a separate download, just google adblock plus element hider...

adblock plus alone seems to work for most people though.

That worked, Chief. Thanks!

I couldn't get Adblock plus alone to work but now the ads are gone. LSP looks a lot better!
