I'm running Linux FC5 with firefox 1.5.0. Not a rare combination on your site. The microsoft (of all sources!) ad that looked like a ripped sheet of paper was broken. It overlapped a lot of text, making the first story on the home page unreadable. The ad appeared in the upper right corner of the window.

Please get rid of that ad (and any others using the same technology) until it is fixed!!! Thanks, and again, I apologize for using this inappropriate place to submit. Could you please add a "contact slashdot" link somewhere? Or is it there but I'm blind/stupid/both?
