    For the love of God.  Get rid of them or I’m leaving.

    I agree.  It’s bush league.

    The ads are ridiculous.  Bush league is exactly right.

    Where are you guys seeing this?  iPad’s plus PC?  If on Mac or PC, use a browser that supports AdBlock.  I am not seeing any of these, and I suspect that is why.

    I get them all the time with my iPad, even with no pop-ups set in settings. On my iMac not at all. Any idea’s?

    Ads are ads.

    Bring them up with Robert via direct PM for best results.  He has the most direct line to TMO management.  He made this suggestion a couple of days ago.

    You could also post in the Announcements and Suggestions board to get the Webmaster’s attention as well.

    Nagrani, I hardly see you here lately.

    Interesting. I’m not seeing any popups. Only the mouseover ones. I am not running any ad blockers.

    Surf on your iPhone and iPad and prepare to be amazed…er, annoyed? wink

    Maybe Mercel can upload a photo of those “covers the whole screen” ads.

    They litter the iPad.  I’ll gladly forward you the nasty-gram if you tell me where to send it.  Thanks.

    Having a Finnish IP number means I get different ads than what you guys will see.  Many are from Finnish companies and in Finnish language.  Not so bad pop ups as described here, but on other websites it can be atrocious.

    But here ... let me help ...

    GET THE F…... POP UPS OFF THIS WEBSITE!!!!

    (There, did it help?)

    Intruder, try the ads for yourself.  They’re awesome.

    You guys should all emigrate to Canada.  We don’t get those ads, not even on the iPad.  I guess the ad is smart enough to know that we don’t have Verizon up here.
