I am getting used to it, but initially I was ready to leave EP. Things like that ought not to be done to a good website.
Just noticed it and asked the same question, more or less
Sssh... it's not for US, silly!
Only when I tried reading it.... until I noticed, that it stops when you put your mouse curse on it. Might help you too.
No. I forgot about it until you pointed it out. :P
Lol. I can't stop looking at it now. Maybe once it's settled on the site, they'll give us all the option of closing it out so that we don't have to see it.
