I have noticed an intrusion of pop up ads all over the place of late and am wondering if I am alone?

The worst had to be today when I tried to enter a poll and a Kansas album and I got a massive full screen ad for something I couldn't even tell what it was, and couldn't find a way to click out of. 


And yes I know AdBlock, but I'm looking for something a little more constructive thanks.

I guess this website has been updated so that ads would be more aggressive yesterday ... Cry

They are a real PITA.

Well I'm glad its not just me. Why does every update make the site worse? Especially maddening when so much of the site needs updating.

Yeah the ads have been crazy here since I came back after a few months. Just got another pop-up one. Lame.

Been getting more of that access denied sh*t too. I thought that was a thing of the past. Seems not...

I use AdBlock too. This site is a downward spiral. Max increases the ad revenue and the navigating ease goes down. My enthusiasm has waned for this site since it's gotten more difficult to navigate this site. I'm experiencing more bugs than ever. The site crashes, pages don't load. It's a friggin nightmare. I sincerely hope that Max is secretly planning an upgrade but given his involvement in these sites i don't have much hope. Boo hoo. Love all of you who have participated and made this site so beautifully wonderful despite administrative f.uc.tardery.
