A hearty thank you to several folks who took the time to write in warning that
some weasel deal ad here was trying to install some scummy application or
ActiveX or whatever it is that they use to make using the internet such a daring
experience. As always, such things should not happen here (they actually
shouldn't happen anywhere, but we have a strict policy against that here), and
the powers-that-be have been scolded into working on getting that fixed. You
shouldn't have to worry about encountering this in the meantime, though...
assuming that those powers-that-be are off in their yachts or planning tourist
trips outer-space, I have pulled the offending ad code until I'm sure this is
taken care of (so they may have to fly to Mars coach class).
