Post 1,000,000 poster you win ?

Why must we be subjected to this BS? For the last 4 days I keep getting an anouncement that I'm the 1,000,000 poster/viewer/whatever, and I don't get it. I understand the need for ad's, but this is really annoying....I know the "winner" is just a ploy to buy something, and I don't think we, or at least I, signed up to be harrassed. Please fix this.
Thank you

1) Download/Install the Opera Web browser
2) open sailnet forums and right click
3) click "block content"
4) click each ad until they're all blocked
5) click "done"

And you'll be done with ads permanently...

Folks,

Are you saying that you are receiving this from Sailnet?

I have never seen or received any such announcement or communication. More details please, so we can refer this to Admin.

It shows up just inside the left boarder ads and at the bottom of the topic at the same time, flashing in multi-colors of pink/green/red. It makes reference to the forum, making you believe that it is forum based, but only a simpleton would fall for that. I have never clicked on it, as it is, and appears to be a BS ad. It says that I have won.......as I am the 100,000/1,000,000 poster. It started ~ last friday or saturday as I recall.

It does not and never has shown up on my screen. I must not be the one millionth poster.

I will mention it to Admin and see if this is legit or ?????

When I come here http://www.sailnet.com/forums/cmps_index.php there is an annoying guy that says Congratulations, You Won! There is a box at the bottom of the page that flashes too.

I've tried turning off AdBlock and also PopUp blocker but nothing bought this little bit of annoyance up on my browser.

Hopefully admin will fingure it out.
