Toni, The one I have seen has a close box on the top right
unless they have added another one:( Really annoys the hell out of me!
If it's the same one...
If it's the same one I'm thinking of, it's been around for over a month. (Click here for one of the original threads.) For some reason clicking the ''X'' didn't get rid of it for me (it only seemed to cause a glitch), so I killed it by blocking insightexpress.com with Adblock. (The image itself is located here, but blocking the entire domain was too tempting.)
(NT) Thanks for the info on the X close not working John!
John, I only saw it once about a month ago. Have not seen it since. Never responded just X-clicked and seems to be gone and forgotten with me until tonight with Toni's question concerning the questioneer.
I had forgotten about it.
Seems to still be lurking about on the CNET? Wonder why?
I blocked it the same as you using Firefox 1.0.7 and Adblock... when the survey popup arrives right click it and add to Adblock removals... haven't seen the little annoyance since!
If the close "X" doesn't work --that's an issue!
I will email the ad folks to look into this.
Lee, The close X has worked everytime
for me. It is just an irritation when I am trying to read a post and I have to get rid of the ad first:(
The "X" works but the add isn't
any more irritating than the black Radio Shack one "Most perfect gift for Christmas" which not only pops into the add box but starts out with a full page before it settles in. I usually have to deal with these two, two or more times per session.
Make that "three" with the additional
Waiting for the forth?
Do you use Mozilla Firefox as your browser?
Mozilla has some interesting stuff to download such as adblocker. Seems to work for me.
(NT) Nope. Bio in my profile has MSIE. Thanks.
Some day your geek mother will send you a subliminal message and you'll miss it too -- not everything is bad. Just irritating and in many cases unnecessary.
I never see
I never see the emoticons in the subject line.
Why does everyone (even the Moderators) use them if it only works in the body of the message?
AFAIK, emoticons don't appear here --> :-)
only here -->
(NT) THAT IS CORRECT )*&#)&*$^#)Q&%^
Thanks everyone for your feedback.. I just spoke to one of
the ad folks and he is going to bring this matter up with their group. Let's hope it does some good.
Again thank you for your feedback!
