I swear this isn't a complaint as more of an annoyance that is quite funny in a weird sort of way the more I think about it...

Seen the ad over on the right of your screen here on LF of the "new generation" of talking smilies?

That little yellow guy has scared the heck out me on more than one occasion by me accidentally running my mouse over him!

"Say something!" indeed! Little creep... :lol:

Yet another reason to use Firefox with Adblock. ;)

I don't have FireFox with Adblock. But I did find that buzzing "Zap the mosquito" ad quite annoying. Until I turned my speakers off. :)

God i got that mosquito one on here the other day, i just zap it but move the cursor off the advert while holding down the button. Kills the bugger, leaves you satisfied and does'nt open the link!

Mozilla and AdBlock, without them internet is not a friendly place, try them and you will never use ie again, I won't, trust me it's better this way!

Just a tiny FYI to anyone interested:

I found a small registry download this morning that blocks Flash ads for us Internet Explorer users!

http://johnhaller.com/jh/useful_stuff/disable_flash.asp

It's at the bottom of the page listed as: disable_flash.reg

Download it then double-click it to add it to your registry and poof! No more annoying Flash ads for us IE users! Yah!

(You will need to restart your browser even though the page says you don't.)

(It's safe and easy to use -- just follow the instructions. :thumbsup: )

I am using it and it does work. Hooray! :D

Keeping an updated hosts file takes care of most of it for me.
