The background advertisement is forcing the threads to condense in width.
This also screws up link targets. Your browser goes to the link target, but then the ad finishes loading and squishes the text. This causes it to reflow and get longer and now all of the sudden you are no longer looking at the post that you were linked to.
Easiest way to see it is to click on a link to the "newest post" in a subscribed thread. If it is somewhere near the end of a page, you will see it for a second, but then the whole thread will get squished and you will no longer see the right post.
Makes me not want to join the trunk club.
