Pop-Up Ads

The Pop-up ads are driving me nutz . I would rather pay a monthly fee and opt for not seeing the ads. I don't mind seeing Sailnet Daily Specials. I like clean and minimal forum.

Please give us some choices here

Re: Pop-Up Ads

Thank WnW,

I am not sure if anyone gets different popups. I always have this one flashing on my screen. In the ad,

She says: She likes older men.
I say: Oh yeah, Older men like younger women.
Ring, ring. Wifey calls!!!

Re: Pop-Up Ads

Just a suggestion....Go to Cnet, Download and download an ad blocker program by name of AdFender. It's free and blocks most popup ads. If you need to disable it momentarily, it has an icon that rests on your tool bar that you can toggle on or off to either block or allow the ads. For example, if you watch a movie on Hulu, you have to allow ads. Otherwise, you can keep most of the popups off. It's a free download.

Re: Pop-Up Ads

Yea, my biggest issue is the speed of page loading. I have not been without an ad blocker for a while, but for me pop up ads and slow load times are killers for me. If ads are sailing related, not pop ups and don't slow the loading of the site, I will but the website on the non block list. I know not too long ago after a web browser reload the load times om this site was so bad without a ad blocker, it is actually what reminded me to reinstall it.

I use Adblock+ with good success.

I don't know how it is a Google thing, the web site can control the ads.

Just curious, are you talking about actual pop-up ads appearing over the content or banner type ads? I'm using Chrome as my browser and I don't get any actual pop-ups. I have them turned off.

Re: Pop-Up Ads

I am talking about the banner ads and the ads come in between post. Many sites allow members opt out the ads if they are willing to pay a small fee to become a VIP member.

I think it is fair deal for both the owner and the members. I am just sayin'.
