    Well, thanks a bunch! You've all given me something to look forward to...haha Seriously, I have FF on my other computer and I did something there that wiped almost all of them away. Remember the overflowing toilet? Killed that in a NY minute. But this Google chrome---I can't figure it out. I'm going to FF tomorrow.

    bit of a conflict of interest for me, here, since the ads doooooo pay our rent and keep the site free to all of us. i'd rather put up with them than have to pay a membership fee. (and ... yes ... i'd have to pay, too. i'm a member and a volunteer.)
    nearly all sites like ours push ads.
    i put it in the same "column" as 1-800-BadDrug ads on TV.
    a necessary pain in the sit-on-it.

    AdBlock plus offers a free version for Google Chrome.
    i have yet to find a free one for MS Explorer.

    Patrice, I understand about the ads paying for us to be here--it's just that particular one that really gets under my skin, and I don't even know what it is. But I change pages and there it is in my face again! I'm sure you've sometimes felt the urge to go ballistic--that's how I was feeling yesterday. Hormones, maybe? A while back there was one at the top of the page saying someone was needing me to contact them. Curious, after several days, I 'put my nose in' and it was "ahem " escort ladies & they were located in a small town near me. Eye opener!

    I think it is a very funny ad because no one can "unfriend" me since I am not a member of any site that allows people to like me or not. In the first place that is not a verb. In the second place it, the ad, allows us to enjoy this board for free. I have recently learned to navigate the pages even more carefully because of the ads on the side that if you happens to move over, the ad pops up and takes over the page. Even though it has a "close" box, it doesn't work. It is irritating, but I figure that is part of the dues we do not pay in cash for this great site.

    I can understand the need for ads, however, do they have to be so annoying and disgusting? Overflowing toilet?? yuk. I have not seen any Flash (animated ads) for a while due to AdBlocker, however I remember VIVIDLY the jiggling bellies and yellow teeth. They are what drove me to block them all.

    I had a lot of problems with google chrome too so I deleted it!

    FYI if you want to get rid of something click on it and then hit alt & F4.

    Oh no, 3 friends wanted to "unfriend me", too! LOL The annoying blinking ads are the worst. I don't mind at all the ads I get when I have done a search or shopped on sites and I do like the ones that pop up with quilting/sewing sites!
