While unrelated to Vegas area ads, I too have a concern with a relatively new feature to our beloved site. The banners for NLBS or a thread posted by SkepticOverlord gets plastered across the bottom of my screen, over the top of text with no option to close the ad. Though you guys own the site, do you really have to advertise your own creations here? I'm already here. Thing is, once you click on the ad and review the thread it does not go away. So we are stuck with a banner for something we have viewed previously. Is it not possible to read the cookies so that ad could be dropped once the reader has reviewed your information?
As far as your issue OP, I feel your pain as that would drive me nuts also. I don't find the ads obtrusive enough to be a bother to me. The ad blocker extension in Chrome works pretty well, maybe a blocker of some sort could be a solution for you.
