Out of the Blue

I encountered an ad with sound here today, and that has been removed from the site, apologies for that. Hopefully this won't happen again, though I was pleased at how rapidly this was addressed, as tracking down problem ads on our previous system was, well, a problem.

I've got you whitelisted on both adblock and flashblock, Blue, but it seems very hit and miss whether I actually SEE an ad or not? Some days I'll come here, and I'll see the banner plus the two at the top of the page (to the right of the news), and other days there's nothing?

I'm having some problems with this too. I think you not only have to whitelist blue's, but also At least on flashblock and noscript; for adblock blue's should be enough.
