Default Banner dot

Please edit out the banner dot. It makes me think I have a pixel out!

Default Re: Banner dot

Looking at the code, it's a tiny GIF dot:

<img src="http://www.bobdunsire.com/adserver/www/delivery/ai.php?filename=bdplaceholder.gif&contenttype=gif" alt="bobdunsire.com forums">

Not sure why it's there.

Mike?

Great. Now I'll never not see that.

On a similar note, I have a vertical line next to the dot. At least from my iPhone using Chrome.

I have neither dot nor line. Is it browser specific? I'm running Firefox.

It is just a place holder.....nothing to worry about.

"Nothing to worry about . . . move along . . . move along."
