Adds, adds, adds, and guess what? More frikkin' adds...

Okay, now I realize that GAG costs money to run and maintain, and because GAG does not have a monthly/yearly/once-off fee membership in order to use the website,; the website must raise its revenue from other areas. One such of these area is the dreaded pop-up advertisement.

Now normally I have no problem with pop-ups, okay you get one or two when you are using a free website, no biggie, its a small price to pay for the continued usage of the website. However, just like everything, it is acceptable to and extent; and ladies n' gentlemen, I believe that "extent" has been well and truly crossed on GAG. I literally cannot post a question, answer a question, hell, click on anything without releasing an onslaught of the dreaded pop-up advertisements (most of which are for adult chat sites but lets not get into that).

As I have said, I am aware that GAG have to raise their funds from somewhere but this takes the medal for the most pop-ups I have ever gotten from a site -even p*rn websites-. I am also aware that GAG are experimenting with different advertisement media - I'm sure you all remember those damned rollover adds that if you were careless with your mouse , obscured your entire screen- and so I'm left wondering a few things;

1) is this a permanent change?

2) if not, roughly how long will it be until a new medium is tested

3) am I the only one receiving such an obscene amount of adverts?

4) and more importantly, will the next change be worse? (god forbid)

  • I don't get any of the pop-ups because my browser (Opera) blocks them. As for the ones embedded on the pages, if you're using Firefox, there is an add-on which will enable you to block them as well.

    • Im using internet explorer and it blocks some of them, but around 3 still get through at a time.

    • Show All
    • You like IE? Why? I like Opera for it's stability, speed, and gesture system. Firefox because of it's customization. IE.. ?

      Also, I notice that the girls picked A while the guys picked D. Implications for tech affinity? hahahaha!

    • Loving the casual sexism, maybe it is the lack of technical knowledge.

      Regardless, I use IE because -and call me crazy- I like it.

  • Didn't read any of what you said.

    Use firefox and the add-on No Script. You can also use software called peer-block that will block advert IPs. Well, there's so many things you can do. Making this question probably won't accomplish anything/
