    New Ad

    I know the site is expensive to run and all. But, I just got a flash media ad. Ya know, those really annoying ones that go over your window. If possible, can you avoid putting these on the site webmaster?

    Get off the power trip buddy. I acknowledge the fact that ads are necessary. However, I was just stating that any other type of ads would be prefered.

    Why are you even using IE? Opera will block all of those annoying ads with a satisfying gusto.
    p.s. What the alphabet would look like without q and r.

    If you constantly blow up over such simple things then your not returning may be a good thing.

    You sure Opera wouldn't be the solution to my problem?

    Those ads do suck. I don't know what idiot came up with them.
    If anything, those annoying ads make me not want to visit their
    site. I don't think the point of advertising is to anger your potential
    customers, which these ads do.

    Banners are fine. Even regular pop-ups are okay (as long as there
    isn't more than one at a time); I can usually close those before
    they even load. But these ads are just awful. They drape themselves
    over the page and require you to wait for the friggin' thing to
    finish its animation before you can close it. That is, if you can
    even find the close-window "x", which isn't always easy to find.
