COMPLAINT

Recommended Posts

These stupid popups are driving me crazy today.

 

Would you like to take a survey? :wacko:

 

I've only been here for about 10 minutes total time today and have had this stupid thing pop up to me at least 5 times.

I've been hearing about this survey thing for a while now. But using Firefox and the Adblock Plus, I have never had the pleasure of seeing it. Not once, on two computers. The other day I was over at a friends house who had the huddle up. He has FF but not the adblock. Yea, that survey thing is annoying.

I get that, but I feel strongly that I (there it is again!) shouldn't have to alter my computer to avoid this crap. Especially for a site that I pay membership for. If I'm a shopping site or something, I tend to expect it. But this is different.

I think I'll bump this thread today every time I get the survey thing.

 

I have a feeling it's going to be at the top of the page all day.

 

Of course, if I were to do something like that, would I be considered a spammer? :wacko:

Hmmm.... I have looked into my crystal ball and I see a banning in your future. :D

I use Big John's solution and I never see an ad. If you are using IE do the following.

 

Click on Tools>Internet Options on the menu bar

Click on the Security tab

Click on the Restricted Sites icon

Click the Sites button

Add the following sites to the list: *.doubleclick.net, *.googleadservices.com, *.serving-sys.com

Click OK

I bet Dave and Whitney are thrilled you are slapping down their ad revenue.

I have actually clicked on an ad or two since the Huddle started the banner ads. I think they agree that the popup stuff isn't cool however.

Wait, is it HERE or on the main page?

 

Because while you pay for "The Huddle.com," the message boards are free.

Fair enough.

 

It continues to anger me, however. If I get slapped for complaining, so be it.
