    Man, I've tried....
    I really have....

    After 5 or ten minutes of clicking those mother-fawking "pop-ups" - I'm Pissed.
    Eventualy, I actualy get to read a post- Interupted by some A-hole -that wasts more of my fawking time.

    Screw 'em!

    I ditched that site awhile ago, I even took it off my favorites.
    Too many things to list that I do not like about that site.
    As far as the pop ups, wasn't the membership thing supposed to do away with them????

    What do you think about the new pop ups that actually stay right in the middle of the screen like the GM credit card one...I was just there and I will never go back, its too far outta hand. I dont care too much for all the little green men flipping me off and if some one dont like somthing I post they respond with a bunch of rainbow flags (refering to homosexuality I guess...since I am married and have two kids) they can take their overpriced rockbuggies and shove em.

    There are some really good programs out that will stop all pop-up on any site, and they are easy to install.

    www.panicware.com and then dl pop up stopper companion 3.0 is the name of it i think, that is what i use and its good. Bad thing, if u click a link that normally opens anotehr window, u have to hold ctrl as u click it otherwise it assumes its a pop-up. Second nature after awhile

    <font color=blue>You dont even need a pop-up killer program. I go to that site a lot, I never paid the $25 and I NEVER see a pop up. If you have Internet Explorer, go to Tools &gt; Internet Options &gt; Security, then click on Restricted Sites and paste the URL of the pop-up adds. As for the site itself, theres tons of info there you would never find here. I like that site

    Paid my $20, it was and is worth it. Just another perspective on what is going on in the 4X world.

    Before I did pay, those pop ups did piss me off till I got 'Pop up killer'. Works great.

    POR is poop. I dont care how much collective knowledge people have there... pop ups suck azz... and LOTS of people there are very mj-esque. Every once in a while i will swing by and read the chevy forum there... pretty much every time i do my previous opinion of the site is reinforced.
