Default Banners, and image validation

I do not know it is only for me, but I cannot use this page, because all of Advertisements, Banners are covering my Login field for example, and sometimes, a banner is coverint totally the full page, when I am opening a Games, Boxshots for example, and I cannot see the full picture, because this Advertisement is above it.
It is occursed problem anybody else?
I am using Firefox, Win 7.

Thanks a lot.

other problem for me, the image validation is terrible. I cannot see the whole letters to validate my post. sorry, but these colors are unusuable!

Login on the site and then visit the forum. Once there, open any link in another window. You'll get rid of the site banner.

@dosraider: the firefox addon (Block Advertisement) for me is not a solution, because sometimes I am usgin Safari under Mac.
Anyway, I agree it is need some advertisemet to maintain the server, etc, but why like this? It seems like chaos in this banners, not controled them.
It is frustrating sometimes.
Thanks a lot.

The owners dictate the advertisements - and it seems they're actually using an external service which chooses them randomly. The most we've ever affected the content was when there was a bunch of complaints about semi-pornographic Evony ads appearing on the site.
