    Overflowing Toliet

    I don't normally notice the pop up adds for QB but is anyone as tired of seeing the Allstate overflowing toliet pop up as I am? Maybe I just need to find a life.

    OMG - it almost makes me GAG. I just got a new computer and get these annoying popups now - I did not get them with my old computer. Don't know how to change things so that I do not get them.

    Are you Logged in SouthPStitches. I was told that we see pop-ups when we aren't logged in. I never see popups.

    I get that ad 95% of the time I get on - even when just changing screens to read a different thread. It is so disgusting that I sent a email to Allstate to tell them how unpleasant the ad is and that, for me, it made me want to NOT deal with their company instead of drawing me to their company. I received a very nice reply from them that stated all their ads are developed only after careful market research. (?) They said they would relay my feelings to the people who create the ads. I know my email won't make a difference, but it made me feel better. I can't stand looking at that toilet fifteen or twenty times every day while I am on the board.

    Switch to Firefox for your browser, and download (FREE) AdBlocker Plus. No ads, anywhere.

    My DH just got an iPad, I was playing with his new toy tonight. I had to quit browsing the internet on it because all the ads got so annoying. I handed the iPad back to my DH and happily resumed browsing on my ad-free laptop.

    I was wondering if anyone else was disgusted as I am with this ad. Is there anyone in the advertising business with a brain or any taste?
