I've never known AO to use pop-ups. AFAIK, they don't. I'd suggest getting out all the adware/spyware tools you have and clean out your machine.

Hmm, if they haven't added pop-ups, there are a rash of us who have spyware. We were discussing it in IRC, and it seems a lot of us have noticed it today. Now usually, I don't always believe everything I read in IRC, but here's the conversation that made a believer out of me.
<TheHorse13> gore, AO indeed is pumping pop ups
<TheHorse13> i just verified it
<TheHorse13> they added the worst kind
<TheHorse13> YOU WIN.....
Now, I could be wrong, cause I use Google toolbar and it blocks them, but usually when TH13 says something, it's after research.
I had one pop-up notification on the site today, thought it was a PM (they're usually blocked too, the downside of google) but it wasn't. Seems there are several people having this issue today.

I dont get any popups...even in exposed machines..Norton Personal Firewall blocks them everywhere else.
Can I ask ya a favor...i'm too lazy to search around, but how do I get to the IRC with you guys/gals?
