    Can you confirm that this only shows when you mouse over the ad in the upper right of the page? Can you close it as well?

    I'm not getting it right now, but will watch for it.

    I'm not sure, but sometimes it comes after mouse hovering on the Ad. Yes a closing button is also there.

    Darn, this is annoying, it just pops out when I hover the top-right IBM ad.

    EDIT:
    Still not fixed as of this time. =(

    It isn't really seen as a problem because it is an ad unit that can be closed. If you then don't hover over it, it won't show.

    I'll bring up with our ad team the fact that that there are complaints.

    Once the ad stops running (which might have already happened), then the 'problem' goes away.
