This can be a really strange bug. After I load this site in the search engines chrome the very first time I notice the pictures are squished but once i refresh the page it might be unsquished. This can only happen the very first time loading the page. please load it in the search engines chrome and let me know why the bars are squished.

How do you make these bars unsquished?

I believe the 100% width value for that images is messing up in some way. Try either getting rid of the width value out of this css rule:

a.auserbars img {
line-height: 0;
text-decoration: none;
width: 100%;

or clearly place it to complement the pictures (310x37).
