:think: Strange. I don't even get one when I'm not logged in using Firefox. Just at work where we have to use IE. :mumble: Even then, it's one when you first bring up the site. After logging in, there aren't any more. You do have the "Block Pop ups" option checked? Sounds like you may have some scum ware on your PC like alexa or that coolwebsearch crap. Done any Spybot or Adaware scans lately? :confused:

Everytime you open a page?? You should only be getting one per day. Anyone else getting bombarded?
i always get one, but occasionally get a second usually after about 5 minutes of browsing the forums, firefox wont block it either, next time i get it i'll pay attention to what add it is and where its from.

there are times however that i get the main popup more than once, which can get rather annoying.

I don't get any, and it wasn't $40 to fill up when I paid. Why gripe when there is an answer. Suck it up, princess.

do you live at home? do you work? do you get a weekly lunch allowance? do you have bills? do you pay rent? do you have a sick mother? do you have a Vespa you're trying to pay off?

"just barely $100 in [your] bank account" might mean something totally different to someone else.

yeh, those popups were very annoying. But why would I want to pay to get rid of them?
I haven't gotten any since I added these two lines to my hosts file (found in C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc)

127.0.0.1 a.tribalfusion.com
127.0.0.1 cdn5.tribalfusion.com

question...are these popups 'stealing' priority now for anyone else? i'll be looking at something, and all of a sudden, this popup will come along, and my tab will automatically go to RM. rather annoying, as it now happens almost every time i open up RM.

Because those ads, and that $20 are what pay to keep the site going. If you can't bare the thought of one of the other, why not wander over to another site and use their bandwidth instead?

I get them a ton too, using firefox.

I dunno, it was after this "maintence" that was done I started getting them. I thought it was from something else on my computer but it isn't. I ran all the adware/spyware stuff etc... It has gotten better in the last day or so but for a little while there everything and anything was comming through.

:stupid: I get a few at home with firefox and more at work with IE (which is funny because my school insists we can't get popups because they block them all).

I am going to Jinx myself here, but I don't get any pop ups.

I have a question though, what the hell is a pop under?
