    This is not good. Not good at all.

    Now it's popping up every thread I see.

    I am afraid it's going to stay

    However, I found that it doesn't pop up always with each thread. Mostly it seems to auto-shut itself.

    I think I found the solution.

    Click "No"

    It won't come back.

    I do believe that when everyone started leaving cos of the ads we were assured there would not be pop-ups. I tried to find a quote but cannot. little by little they will inch along so we don't even realize...
    “Oceania is at war with Eurasia. Oceania has always been at war with Eurasia.”
    I'm off to GalahTech, hope to see you there.

    On the other hand I think the admins made it pretty clear they would use popup ads if the advertisers wanted

    The good news is this particular popup is not an ad, so it won't come back once you click No, as Mendhak has suggested. I confirmed it

    If it isn't caused by this is is something else caused by VBF... I'm on DSL so it doesn't slow me down (really ****ing annoying though) is anyone here on a slow connection? Is it slowing you down?
    I just started comming back here more often (cos GalahTech is still a bit empty) but oh well, I guess I'll do some work.
    I'm off to GalahTech, hope to see you there.
