    Guys, I just got one of those ads that hijack your browser window and try to simulate a Virus Scan process. You know the kind. It won't let you close the window until you click OK or Cancel.

    Funny thing is I use AdBlockPlus and I still get this ad.

    You need to let the big wigs at whoever run this place now know that the biggest negative feedback are the ads that hijack our screen. I'd seriously pay 5 bucks a month to access this place if there were never EVER ads that hijack my browser window to worry about.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    They started by dropping the chat link. This is the next step to push us off of the site.

    Why not DDoS the virus pop-up link, put it offline?

    Yeah, that's the one De-Ting. I'm just bringing it back up so they can know it isn't fixed.

    Also, that thread title is awful.

    Would you like to orchestrate that?

    Not really, as i have literally no effort to spend on anything other than sleep now.

    Also, requesting the topics name to have an 'i' in it.

    Really now Duke?
    (apparently these ads only last for the time the homepage loads, and then redirects when it's done.)
