Thumbs down Pop-up ads. Don't they suck?

Well everytime I go to a different Forum Sixty pop-up ads pop-up!
I have the latest version of Norton Anti-vrus pop-up extermenator but that doesn't help!


What do you think about pop-up ads?

What pop-ups? I don't get any. The ones that really suck are porn and "Do you want her!?" ads on the page.

pop-ups suck plain and simple....*walks away slowly*


When I get home people'll ask me, "Hey Hoot, why do ya do it man? Why? Just some war junkie?" Ya know what I'll say? I won't say a goddamn word. Why? They won't understand. They won't understand why we do it. They won't understand that it's about the men next to you, and that's it. That's all it is.

Yes, wb. =)

I used to have Pop-Up Stopper, but that didn't stop all the pop-ups. I have the new Google toolbar, which has a pop-up stopper built in, and it's works great.

Norton Anti Virus gets rid of all ads, ones on the page, and pop-ups.

I have Norten Anti Virus 2004, and all you have to do is open it up and go into pop up blocker and either double click it or double click configure, and then check what you want.

But What I really hate about pop-ups is when you're playing a game over the internet, and a million of them pop-up so you have to close them, and by the time you get back to the game you've been fragged about 8 or 9 different times. Pop-Ups Suck.

Web Washer ( http://www.webwasher.com/client/down...use/index.html ) is a free download that blocks all the popups, and even banner ads and animations.
Works really well too. I've been using it for years. A couple of sites freak-out when you use it, but not that many.
I also use the Google Toolbar to block the popups for when I have disable WW on those sites that won't let you in using ad-blocking software.

pop up ads stink! hey for all of those non illiterate computer haters, get the Symantec Norton Internet Security. it has the pop up blocker, which blocks every pop up ad you can ever get, it blocks Trojan horses, which really would stink up your computer and its downloads, it scans all emails for viruses, etc. and it only costs twenty a year (i think) to automatically update the program -yup, that's an update every month all paid for.

Or maybe Lynk, I have a crappy laptop with bad keys, and maybe I have great spelling, and lack of spelling? Maybe I'm just lazy and don't feel like typing normally and correctly. Maybe this post sort of shows you that I have absolutley no problem typing, and or having problems with my shift keys.

Well, I think your over-using the fact that your a modderator, and should either put up or shut up.
Oh, and if you ban me, I'll just remake another account and PM you a ton of times. So I've warned you.

Oh, and another thing, this is sort of strange. You know why? Because everything in this forum must be spam then, considering how much you complain about it. Maybe you should moderate another forum? So back off!

Touchy aren't we. listen pal. when you come in here and scream "I DO NOT WANT A FRIGGIN LARGER PENIS! ITS ALREADY A FOOT AND A HALF!!" It's not making you look very good, and when you tried to make another bar fight thread despite the fact that the last one was closed didn't go down well either.

Another piece of advice. NEVER threaten ANYONE in LucasForums with that kinda crap. I don't care what reason it is, if you're planning to be banned (which you seem to be very well prepared for) then you should just calmly leave the forum without causing an incident.

And no I think I'll keep on moderating this forum, it's a nice forum and no as long as I'm here I won't back off of anything. I've been moderating for a long time now and I've been admin of another forum for even longer and I've had no complaints till now, so my track record is pretty damn good so far.

But I will give you one point since I was being harsh with my "Rogue Ninish" teasing which you didn't understand. I have nothing against you at all. But I'm not the type to back down from anyone when they challenge me in any way so as a 'valued member' is suggest you "put up or shut up" at this point in time.
