Is this something wrong with my computer, or the site, or the advertising?

The first one was in Mike's tattoo thread, the second two were seen while posting this thread (#2 while making the first post, #3 while previewing the thread.)

Those are rather odd. I've checked the generation code in the admin and the right source is still there so I'll see if there's anything going strange on the advertiser's side of things.

Is it just the text that appears there, or are there images?

I can't find anything at my end, and the advertisers' server is still the same, which leaves the possibility of there being something on your machine. It could be that there's a trojan that's trying to replace images with a certain aspect ratio with spam. It would probably be worth running a scan on your machine.

Has anyone else seen these text-only 'adverts'?
