Is it just my computer or is everyone else on here getting advertisements that pop up on the side and bottom of the screen. I only seem to get these pop ups on the Florida sportsman forum pages. They're getting to be a bother, if they're necessary then oh well but just wanted to make sure it's not just my computer.

IE has a built-in adblocker and pop-up blocker (I have that turned off and still do not see ads) and as noted you can get Adblocker Plus for all browsers.
Almost seems to me though, that some of you have some malware/adware on your computers as well.
I had you pissed off at hello.
Tried this site with Firefox - they are gone.
What is it with AD guys? Seems they really put a lot of effort into
ways to pizz people off :banghead
It's like "fool proof" they make a smarter fool
I refuse to look at what they are selling
When they load by mistake,as I try to X them out
I just close FS down and move on
To a more friendly web page
Hope FS finds a friendlier add company
While I think it is in OUR INTEREST that FS make a profit, and I think advertising IS a legitimate way for them to generate the revenue I do find myself agreeing that there has to be a more ADULT FRIENDLY way to go about it.
As it is the advertisers using those add types will not be seen on my computer......BUT.....I am open to the notion that we who use the forum ( for free! ) should maybe show some preference for the advertisers who do so in a unannoying way. Maybe with a feedback mechanism such that FS & the advertiser know we've responded and used their products as a result of their polity means of advertising.
Because print media has just been thriving compared to digital media in the past decade.
Okay, second reboot and ads do not seem to be popping, cabelas still does though.
