We don't have a single pop up programmed for anywhere on any of the Cafes except for the PM notifications.

I know you say this all the time, but I get popups about every 3 or so visits to the Cafe. It's usually an Orbitz or Screensaver popup. It's been doing this ever since I've been here.

1. I will not use it if they can track that I am looking at porn.
2. I don't want them owning anything I create, type or post. That's just really retarded.

That's insane. It's been humorous to watch the start of the Google transformation as it changes from "Champion of the Oppressed" to "Dark Corporate Entity". This should help further it along. }:-)

About every 12 hours? If so, then that's a pop under not a pop up :-D . It shows up down as a window at the bottom of the screen instead of on your screen. Servers ain't free, so we gotta have a little advertising out there. :-b

The Google Chrome EULA has already been changed. It was a mistake. :-)

I'm not complaining. I was just saying it blocked it on Chrome, when FF doesn't do that. I'm all for doing what you have to do to keep this site without going into my pockets.

Cool. ;-D

We try on our end too, which is why there aren't any ads that make noise, expand, move around on the screen, no pop ups, etc. And if any slip through the cracks, we get rid of them. ;-D

I think I speak for most everyone here when I say thanks for no "noisy" ads. I hate visiting a certain major sports website because of the videos that play after the page loads.
