    Angry Annoying -in my face

    Can someone PLEASE tell me how to get rid of the message at the top of the page--"3 people have unfriended you" and the invitation to 'click here-free'. I've just put Google chrome browser on this laptp and the pop up blocker is checked...yet a lot of nonsense on the pages that I didn't have before...and I don't know how to manage this one. Should I uninstall and go back to FF? Can you tell this is a rant?

    Rant or not, won't do any good. If it isn't that one it will be another. This is an advertising spot. I don't think you can do anything about it.

    It's an ad. Just have to ignore it I think.

    I agree - very annoying. I guess this is how the forum expenses are met. Be very careful and don't click on anything until the screen is fully loaded otherwise you will wind up in one of those websites - ask me how I know!

    The same ad is on some of the pages I use. And they say "3" friends. I couldn't care less. I figure it will disappear some day.

    I had that one for awhile. Now since I've been searching for Christmas gifts I'm getting lots of ads for those things. A few weeks ago my son was searching for engine parts and I had ads for things I didn't even understand! It was kind of funny really. Mostly, I just ignore them. The board has to pay the bills.

    I also use ad blocker plus and rarely get ads on my pages. Saves alot of frustration on my part.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!
