I'll try to get these ads removed from the rotation. Or just use adblock?

I have the same problem. Only on my mac though; but, my PC does have ad block. So I dunno.

I'll have my laptop back soon and hence adblock. It was more for other people.

i have the same problem... it might just be a mac thing because, it happens for me at work but, at home on my PC, it doesn't occur... so i don't think it's that big of an issue since the mac population is probably like less than 5%... instead of fast reply, just go to "add reply"...

QUOTE (Massacre @ Mar 15 2011, 01:24 AM) *
Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

That was a strange ad placement...
I'm blocking all ads so I have no problems.

Find what server it comes from and add it in the Hosts file.

Can't do it with Internet Explorer. FireFox has an ad block feature.

and why are you taking pictures of the computer screen? you can take a screenshot.

Depending on your keyboard, mine is Shift+PrtSc which is up top towards the right usually. Next to or around NumLock and Pause buttons.

The ad blocker might be under Options or Tools. I'll look around unless someone who knows answers.

Thanks I'll have a mess around with it.

I turned the option about pop ups off so I presume that's it?

I don't think these ads count as a pop up. That's ads that open in a new window automatically when you view the page.

Opera has one too, and nothing has to be downloaded or added. But I prefer other ways to block ads because sometimes I use IE. Norton and the HOSTS file are blocking ads regardless of which browser I'm using.

The MAG ad is still getting in the way even though I've turned pop ups off on Firefox, maybe it's not technically a pop up?

Now ^that's^ proven, so go for the AdBlock route.

I've just added ad block to Firefox and it worked on the ad at the top of the page but doesn't give the option when I try it with MAG.
