Just got my third, fourth and fifth. American Express, and two Circuit City/Firedogs--both expanded even though I wasn't rolled over at all.

I'm beginning to think it's their way of turning a profit, get all the lower echelon people and anonymous users who use up all the bandwidth to get turned off from using the site, and get anyone willing to stay have to pay up for premie. They can't lose!!!!1

I was joking about the business thing, sorta. Can you not just choose a different ad company or something, or you locked into your contract with them? Ok, just had the headplay popup while I'm typing this -> irony.

I got rollovers a lot last week and the bottom of the page is getting old, too. I steered clear for a while after last week's incident... may be happening for good soon.

heres the email I just wrote to our ad server:

stop serving anything thats not a google ad until you figure this out. if this happens one more time, we are pulling out of the contract. you are causing a loss of users with these bullshit popups. they cannot continue.

No, by "them" I meant popups. It looks like in previous posts nael said that there should be no pop advertisements on the site.

I don't have a problem with ads, and I never see them because I pay for the premium account. I was just asking why not turn all popups off instead of getting rid of popups on an individual basis per the post: "which ad is popping up? let me know and ill get rid of it."

we have our ad server set to not allow pops, expands or bursts, but each new campaign finds ways to sneak them by the filter. we are working on a way to fix this.

it helps to know the individual one so we can search out the ad in the long list of
