    I dont even notice that ad.

    I dont get any pop ups thanks to OPERA!

    The most annoying ones I have seen, move up and down the page, or ones that cover a portion of the page for like 5 seconds...

    There are even some flash ones that are animated, and play over top of the page.

    Opera shouldn't do that IMO... it screws webmasters out of possibility.


    BTW: most advertisers define a "click" on a per IP per day basis.... But visiting a sponser's page when it interests you once anf a while is not a bad idea

    That blows... no wonder so many websites fail...

    IMO, that image is worse than the ads.

    I've went on a clicking rampage for the Cboard before.

    I support the Cboard, and have discussed donation information with Kermi3 before. If I like a site, I'll try my best to keep it going and support it's rules relating to bandwidth, etc. I just use tools similar to the graphic I posted for sites I might happen to fly by when searching for something.

    I never see any commercial banners. I only see advertisments for cprogramming.com.
    Maybe it's because I'm from Sweden.

    >>> I only see advertisments for cprogramming.com.

    I see a few here in Denmark, but mostly it's the CProg mailing list sign up which doesn't work, (I've mentioned that to the webmaster by the way).

    I remember a thread a while back that was dedicated to some Saddam Hussein advert. Never saw it here, so the ads are obviously regionally targetted.

    We're obviously not worth advertising too!

    I hate the fact that commercial pop-up killer software uses pop-ups to sell itself.

    I hate pop-ups full stop.

    I can deal with banner ads, they are no where near as intrusive as pop-ups. In fact - Penny-arcade have a (great) policy against using pop-up ads and only using banner ads so it doesn't intrude.

    Ads are needed to be here, period. If you don't like them then go somewhere else and quit wasting space that people who would click them could be filling. Granted i use the pop-up stop feature, but i click the banners, unlike alot of people who use po-up stoppers here do.
