Pop Up Ads make this site a waste of time

Is it just me or does anybody else find this site almost unusable due to the crazy amount of pop up ads?! It's a shame as there is a wealth of great information here but it is being smothered by the advertising to the point of being unusable. Tech Advisor I think you have over done the ads at the cost of the people you are trying to attract to read them.

Just do like we all do and use a good adblocker!

No adds = no income = no Tech Advisor!

Yep I know and saying ridiculous is harsh but I still thunk there are too many on this particular site. It makes reading the content nearly impossible which then defeats the object. Good tip about the pop up blocker. Thanks

There was a TA poll just above the posting box. It referred to adblockers for Internet sites. If you click on the " yes I use an ad blocker"

It registers with the " I am alright Jack " quotation.

I turn my Adblocker Off every once in a while.

I have never knowingly bought a product as a result of an advertisement

How sad is that

If you want to stop pop=ups but, don't want to use an adblocker, check your browser settings to see if there is a setting to block pop-ups, as there is in Opera.

What is really funny is the most recent post click here

Most amusing! ;-)

Most amusing is right. There are people out there who bear grudges, and they'll go to great lengths to post offensive comments about us in general and me in particular all over the web - they hide behind the anonymity the internet affords, of course.

It has been going on for many years, and I for one am used to it.

Not a single person has ever been banned from this forum just because they disagreed with me, but lots have gone because they posted personally offensive comments about other forum users.
