Angry How to get rid of the 'Take this Survey' ad

Please move this to the appropriate forum, I couldn't find one.
I've paid to be a member but I see this 'Take this Survey' Ad or something on the Howto forge pages. How do I get rid of that? I cannot even take the survey because it doesn't list Australia as a country. I tried to take it but it still comes up on the screen, even after it knows I've completed it (I chose France as my country because Australia wasn't listed) and said that I'm not eligible.

Thanks

It's no ad, that's why you see it - even Till and I see it. I will ask for how much longer this has to be up - I hope we can remove it soon.

I'm not sure it works, probably we talk about a CPA Lead survey, if you don't take the survey you can't acces the service or the site using it.

As falko already explained, this was no ad and it was not served by a adserver. What untg misinterpreted as ad was a graphical link to our internal the howtoforge user survey.
