That is interesting - I wasn't aware of it either (though I have only been on the site for 3 months so I'm still unearthing things like this)

I'll look into it and keep you posted.

Merry Christmas in the meanwhile!

Thanks Katie - I hope they let you out of RW Towers at some point over Christmas!

Maybe it's the tech guys idea of a laugh?

Thanks for the reply, Katie and happy Christmas!

I wondered what this thread was all about, but then remembered I'd seen mention of something similar in a thread that I'm a regular member of ... And then I remembered I have Adblock Plus installed. Turning it off for runnersworld.co.uk enables me to see the effect you're describing. Stealth advertising really isn't very pleasant. Anyway, turned Adblock Plus for runnersword.co.uk and tweeted Adidas my disappointment.

Ann Summers did send me to their site. I spent too much again

Yes, I'm still here! We're still looking into it, but halfway there - will keep you posted when it's resolved.

...aaaand 1 week later ( and 4 weeks since the issue was first raised)

any closer to an answer...?

Have M&S got in on the act, or Trek, or Nike?  We know Adidas have, and Ann Summers.

It seems it doesn't show up until you submit your reply...
