Default Stupid Sprint ad making my pointer crazy

Please Login to Remove!

Hey, that stupid sprint add with the floating hearts is making my pointer flicker when I move around the screen. I hate that.

It's in the ad bar down the left side of the screen. A Google ad - just have to keep hitting refresh until you see it. I think it's mostly random.

Using Firefox now....

No it's constant on the Sprint ads with animation. The one with the floating hearts was the worst. It makes your pointer almost impossible to see when floating over a link.

However, I have seen these ads on other sites and not experienced the same issues that I have on this site with the "disappearing" pointer. Just an observation, not an accusation.
