Out of the Blue

On the heels of yesterday's scumware discussion, it seems that some users are getting an oddball broken banner ad on this site on occasion that prompts for the installation of a plug-in that sounds a bit fishy (this may only be afflicting Netscape/Mozilla users based on the reports I've seen so far). I'm still in the process of looking into this, but wanted to let you now what was up in case you experienced this yourself, as well as welcome feedback from anyone who feels they have any insights into this, should it turn out it's actually just a bug, or some other deal with a story behind it.
