It is making the page just leeettle slower to load, and then it does an annoying skip IYKWIM.
Is it here to stay? <<asks politely>>
Please say it is not so. It is annoying and brings the general tone of the site down <<hoiks>>
Get rid.
Gin may be forthcoming... <<weedles>>

Has Wowcher been taken off the Chat threads or is Ghostery suddenly blocking it? Zombie also has AdBlockPlus but has disabled it for MN.

Yes I'm finding it really annoying too. What's it for anyway? I'm not clicking it angry

I don't think Ghostery blocks it Zombie, but if you use a Flashblocker or NoScript that might affect it. Fwiw, I disable NoScript for MN, so it may be FlashBlock, which I'm not enabling, too many exploits are deployed in Java and expect you to autorun either Java or Flash.

Zombie's been wandering around Chat at bit. It's weird. Wowcher shows up on some threads but not on others. Can't identify a pattern.
