I am THISCLOSE to leaving this place. Not that anyone cares. I have been highjacked 6 times tonight by ads that spill over top of links after posting to threads. This is REALLY ridiculous. It's nothing more than a lame way of grabbing ad revenue. I'm friggin' sick of it. Come on, ENOUGH OF THIS CRAP. This place isn't worth the aggravation. Money grubbing freaking web site owners are making me sick.

Are you using your own computer or someone else's? If it is you own computer, not at your work or a library, you can stop this rather easily.

I don't see any...never have.

You might check out some of the posts at Computer Help.

Search results for ads

Search results for pop ups...or start a new post telling what OS and Browser you are using.

I have flash blocked on my computer so these ads don't load unless I click on the flash icon.

I forgot to mention that I think it's a Mozilla add on. They also have an add on called Adblock Plus. I have both.
