I'm at work, and I work in one of those "open concept" offices. I'm the only IT person in here. I really don't want people to think I'm watching Flight of the Conchords when I'm just trying to edit a question a few times.

Use the Dillo browser? :P – Richard JP Le Guen Sep 1 '10 at 14:58
It's a cute image, but SO is supposed to be geared towards professionals. It might be just a tad too cute. – user27414 Sep 1 '10 at 15:15
I think the Adblock answer that someone posted but apparently deleted upon the first downvote, was not a bad workaround. If the workspace is that strict, then some ads might be troublesome as well? (Ah, the answer is back!) – Arjan Sep 1 '10 at 15:28
As usual a Greasemonkey or Stylish script will work... (but I can't work on it because I need to see the actual code, and I have no idea how to trigger that thing). I suppose if I give a dummy answer then quickly edit it five to six times I will see the thing? – Yi Jiang Sep 1 '10 at 15:58
Applying reductio ad absurdum, you're the only one that does what you do, your co-workers don't have a clue, they don't appreciate what you do, they automatically assume you are goofing off when they see an unusual image on your monitor. How is that SO's problem? – Uphill Luge Sep 1 '10 at 21:57
@YiJiang, see stackoverflow.com/captcha ;-) – Arjan Sep 2 '10 at 22:41

If you install Adblock Plus, you can right-click on it and select block image.

I really never liked this answer. A. It's not an ad. B. I have to install third-party software and C. I always relate it to this. If I told a client this for one of our applications, they'd probably flip. – Kyle Rozendo Sep 1 '10 at 15:19
I'm running ad-block (not adblock plus, because I'm on chrome). I don't see a bunch of ads, but this image isn't one. I've installed a variety of plugins to my browser like "switchImages" that turn off images, but then I can't see the damn captcha graphic :( – Incognito Sep 2 '10 at 14:13
You have to block it specifically. I don't know how you do that in Chrome's ad-blocker. – Gelatin Sep 2 '10 at 14:28
Adblock now supports this under chrome6. Accepting because it solves my problem, but I'd doubt that SO wants us blocking their ad space. – Incognito Sep 16 '10 at 18:59
@user142287: I haven't used Chrome's ad-blocker, but at least with Adblock Plus, actual ads are only blocked if you subscribe to a filter for them. – Gelatin Sep 16 '10 at 20:52
