    Give me a break

    While I realize that this site is paid for by advertisement, come on can you guys atleast try to do a better job at hiding your popups.

    For those of you that have no idea what I am talking about, switch between a forum, or just simply refresh a couple of times. There will be a pop-up window, that opens, and then closes. Why do I have a really really big feeling that, that window, is from an advertiser?

    Come on, that is just a crappy job at trying to hide them, better than the annoying ass ones, that asked me to fill out a server, but not that good of an attempt.

    Why is that an issue when we have ads in the middle/top-right area of the site. The new blue colored scrollbar and logo looks like crap. Thread AP is lame, you people put it up there and made it stick out and look ugly on top of threads because you realise what a stupid idea it is... but its kept around just for shits and giggles.

    I am positive it's not on my in, I actually don't use my Pop-up blocker unless, I feel that I am going to be over run. (I have my reasons.)


    Second, I am positive it is not on my end because, I commonly log in, from several different terminals.

    Oh well.

    Your right whizkid2300 there are pop-unders in this site, yet I dont get the windows to pop up on me, this could be an connection speed, meaning if you have cable or something faster the popup is loading faster than the site can shut it down. I do monitor every site that is downloaded and among them is ad.whatever.com that shows its nasty self. This doesnt bug me for the fact I dont have to pay for this site. I also dont run IE instead I use firefox, this will cut down on the problems IE have

    I've never gotten any kind of "report" of a pop-up. Instead, I just don't see pop-up's and I go on my merry way
