I just have to say, the Behringer banner ad is exteremely annoying. I'm all for selling ad space to make money, but do you have to use one that constantly expands itself over the forum menu?
Money talks, forum riff-raff walks.
Seriously, all you need to do is add an ad blocker extension to your browser. I did and I very, very seldom see ANY ads, including the one you're referring to. It's easy and great.
