Sigh, these kinds of reports depress me. My roommate actually works for the company who runs The Home Depot's ad campaigns, and ran the campaign for a while, so I feel like I should be blaming him here.
Anyway, I'll pass this along to the ad guys, try to get it sorted out. Ads are programmatic so I don't think we can do much about the subject content but that placement needs to fixed. Thanks for the heads up!
I don't care about the content, at least it's always SFW, but I really care about whoever design these complex pages and then can't get it right that ad material don't overlay content. This is one of the few sites I frequent that does not offer a "pay a membership fee to suppress ads" option. It keeps my annoyance level with this site fairly high.
I can't say I blame you there. If only ten percent of our 2,000,000 registered members chose to pay a one time 5 dollar fee to eliminate advertising on their machines, that would be $1,000,000 in revenue. Certainly far more than they'd see via advertising I suspect, if those numbers are even close to right. I think a lot of people would choose to pay it too.
