Our Bouncing Menu Bar

We are seeking some feedback our our blue menu bar. That's the one at the top of the page with News, Entertainment, Buy & Sell, etc.

When we redesigned the site a few months back, we programmed it so that the menu would always be at the top of the screen, similar to the previous version of the site where we had where it was locked to the bottom of the screen.

We've had some emails from some readers saying they find it distracting - not so much when you scroll down a page, but when you scroll up as the bar must chase along to get to its proper position again.

Just for Monday (May 31), we've turned the menu following feature off the main page of Castanet, and left it all on the regular news pages like this one so you can compare.

We can't control how fast the menu bar chases to go back to the top of the screen, just whether or not it does this at all.

What do you think about it?
