Default Re: Flashing Red Ad on side panel.

Please remove this ad from your roster, and ask the advertiser not to submit it again. I think it's great that BHtv has advertisers, and I'm happy to consider their products, but I can't watch the diavlog running on the same page as this ad, as the ad is too distracting. I clicked on it to find out what company placed it, but there's no way I would do any business with such an advertiser, and if it keeps appearing on the site, I'll be forced to avoid BHtv in the future.
A legitimate complaint.

One workaround: While watching, resize your browser window so it's only wide enough to display the video itself. That's what I always do, because most of the right-hand sidebar ads have some annoying characteristic.
