Stupid pop-up ads!!!!!!!

I'm curious, what's the deal with the freaking pop-up ads?! They are the most ANNOYING f$&%ing thing in the world and I am slightly(to say the least) disappointed that you guys stooped to that level. I believe somewhere a while back, when changes to the BBS were just starting to happen, we were told not to worry about pop-up ads, as ORC would not do that. Well, now we do. I can't be the only one slightly peeved about this!! Anyone else?!

<font color=green>Yeah, you can color me annoyed too. I realize that ORC has to make money somehow, but I'd rather have the banner ads than the damn popups.

Re: Stupid pop-up ads!!!!!!!

I'll jump on the bandwagon. Popups are cheap, lame, poor man's excuses for generating revenue. This site WILL lose members if this type of unsolicited BS continues.

Re: Stupid pop-up ads!!!!!!!

<font face="comic Sans MS">Are you guys sure the pop-up ads are coming from ORC? I have yet to experience a pop-up ad generated from ORC... I do get some popups occasionally but this is only when another site I use is up. When that site is open without ORC open the popups remain, and when ORC is open by itself, no popups... [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] Just a thought...

You can always download a free pop-up blocker... There are definitely some nice ones. I used to have one but lost it when I switched to a new machine... [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]</font>

<font color=green>Well, at least a dozen guys are complaining so far, and all seem to be happening at the same time, at log in and if you go to the main menu for me, and the first time I go to my home page in the morning. I do think it is coming from ORC. I don't like the pop-up blockers, ran one for a while and the thing was loaded with spyware. They are free for a reason... TANSTAAFL...

Re: Stupid pop-up ads!!!!!!!

Ummmm, yah, I'm getting them too... usually when I first go to my home page, and, I agree, they suck. I quit going to a couple of other boards for that reason... is there any way they can be eliminated?

Re: Stupid pop-up ads!!!!!!!

I could understand if only a few people are getting the pop up ads. Then it could count for coincidence. But it seems quite a few people, 10-20 that I know of, are complaining of them. And it seems 50% of the ones I know of are very upset and mention they left other boards for this reason. I think it's plain, pure, undeniable BULL$H!T. But hey, that's just me. I'm stubborn enough, and enjoy this board enough that this incredibly incovinience will not drive me away, but it will make me bitter and frequent here less often. I suggest any moderators of this board take it up to someone higher and poke around to see what's up. I'll keep posting here about this until it's resolved, or we atleast know ORC is the ones up to this $h!t.

P.S. Sorry for my angry attitude, I just get thoroughly annoyed by popups.
