payloadz ad crashes browser November 30, 2006 9:48 PM   Subscribe

I don't know what that payloadz ad is but when I click on it, absolutely nothing happens. Nothing. Anywhere. Especially in my browser.

What are these "ads" of which you speak?

I'm on Safari, latest.

The ads are on the blue and green, under the MeFiComp ads.

I see an ING Direct ad on the blue in IE (in which I'm not logged in), but that's it. So confused.

The ads are completely gone now.

It's supposed to be an occasional ad for some paypal store that you can use to sell software (like kagi, but paypal).

It probably only shows up once in every 100 pageviews, but it should link to the right site.

I was getting it consistently on blue and green with each reload (I went back and forth) but, though my mouse hovered properly over it, clicking did zip.
