I don't think there is anything you can do about this, other than using a different browser to read the forums.

Veritable Malware Ads made in flash/shockwave, causing the computer to slow to a crawl or even crash when they display, was one of the biggest reasons I felt compelled to switch to Firefox. The AdBlock extension is wonderful for dealing with this kind of thing, allowing you to get rid of disruptive ads with just a click.

(I don't think many TV viewers would put up with Ad spots disabling the remote control whenever they show, so I find it a bit amusing that these kinds of disruptive ads are concidered okay to put in the rotation on the Web. )
