Plain and simple, I got bombed earlier today with 3 HUGE ads all at once, and every return I made to the site after hit me with MONSTER SIZED ads telling me how 'Unsecure' my computer is.
Nevermind I'm behind a hardware firewall and have a good Antivirus..
Some people could be SUCKERED by these SUPER SIZED ads, I suppose, but I really think the TRUTH is they will cause people to AVOID this site.
There's enough ads on as it is, do we really need FULL SCREEN SOLID RED POP UP ADS with GIANT YELLOW TEXT ON THEM? I think not.
Just an opinion, but if it doesn't change, I'll get my JK2 files somewhere else. Considering half the time is down anyway, I often end up doing just that.
Mind you, I DO understand the need to pay for the web hosting. But THIS is just RIDICULOUS. I haven't seen such bad ads since I was redirected to some crappy PRON site. (Bet that the PRON site at least works 24/7 though).
One last note: I suggest any users with the knowledge turn OFF cookies that pull user identifiable data in your browser, cause SOMETHING here tracks every move you make even when you LEAVE and visit other sites. It's probably one of the ads served here, but it's definitely tracking where you browse, and serving that data back to someone, take my word for it. Everyone else should get a nice cookie blocking program like Ad-Aware. Big Brother is WATCHING.

A mind is a terrible thing to taste.
