Default American Express advert's

Any chance of getting the web guys for this site to limit these ad's to one per page as the more of these ad's that are on each page the worse the scrolling gets.

I had three of these ad's on one page yesterday and it took 15 seconds plus for me to do anything with the page. It is very annoying when this happens.

I seem to be having the same problem with my home computer. This is the only web site where this seem to be a problem.

Can't block these ad's as they are banners on the page itself. Boo Hoo.

Gee Lombard...

You really want the site to go broke, and have to shut down?

Worse yet... do you want to see my checks bounce?

Check out other commercial cruise sites, message boards. In most cases you have to scroll down half a page before you even get to the first message.

Nope! So I have madly clicked on a few banners and ads to try and generate a bit of income for the board (even the american express one).

All this clicking surely must have generated at least 0.5c.

the trick is to wait until the images of the globe and the hula girl have fully loaded, then you can scroll past them in a jiff
