    Am I the only one that has noticed a real increase in the number of flashing advertisements on this forum? :evil:

    Advertisements are fine, but the flashing ones are very distracting and really detract from this forum. Admin????

    I agree. I guess there are some good points to having chemo brain (I'll be darned!!) :-)

    I ignore them when I see them.

    Haven't noticed any of them today.

    At least they are quiet!

    while they may be distracting to some they provide the money to keep our board alive.

    i've been here for a long time and have never had a flashing add of any kind...
    maybe you need to adjust a setting with your virus protector to block pop-ups? seriously...ive been here for a couple years now and have never seen one of these...

    I haven't noticed them either, but I'm pretty good at blocking out all the non-board stuff while I'm here. We do need the advertisers to keep this great site going, so if they want to flash, it's OK by me.

    What about those that the avatar is moving like some animal.
    That is irritating to me.

    I don't let it bother me one way or the other. Goodness if that was my only annoyance or gripe, I would have it made in the shade.LOL I also figure they help pay for this wonderful site we have. I can & will live with them. LOL

    I don't get the flashing ads. I have firefox so I guess that must block the ads.

    Personally I don't mind the moving things in peoples posts. I really don't like advertisements and the flashing ones are the worst but I think that quite possible selling advertizing space is what keeps this a free forum. Am I correct in assuming that or just computer illiterate?

    Okay until this post I hadn't even noticed them, then realized there was one at the top of the page. I don't know if it is the fibro-fog or tunnel vision but I guess I have been blocking them out. The ones that bug are the ones that move across the page so you accidently click on them, fortunately I don't there are any of those on this board.

    I have been on this forum for 3 years and never ever seen flashing adverts. Perhaps as someone says you need to adjust your cookies or block something or other.

    I have FF and don't see them - I also have AdBlock, HIGHLY recommend, esp. if you have dial up. Pages load a lot faster without Flash ads.

    A lot of times, you can press the ESC key and it'll stop the flashing/animations. It doesn't work 100% of the time, but it does help.

    I use FireFox with AdBlock Plus, and don't see any ads at all, anywhere. :-)
