I do hope that the HP scrolling advert is a Christmas limited edition copy only - I sincerely hope that it is not encouraged for the future - if it is, methinks PCA may be pushing the level of members acceptability a step to far with this one. As the FE (maybe reluctantly) acknowledged even he finds it a tad irritable. I find it plain annoying.
I adblock every image on this site and started doing so after the ‘3’ and underlined green adverts started some years ago.
Yes, I know it’s good to click for the advertising to pay for the running costs and I used to occasionally click on them and bought an external hard drive from one of the links.
However if you want to alienate your ‘customers’ then you’re going the best way about it. If you guarantee to stop the intrusive ads then I’ll promise to switch off adblocking, until then it stays switched on.
