    Get Firefox and then the add on Ad Blocker, you will not be sorry.

    Yes, but I don't see why that should be necessary for everyone. We paid for membership, and there were no ads for several years, and now we have them, and of the lowest-common-denominator kind --"date Bimbos from Russia," etc.. Such tacky crap depreciates the site, and we shouldn't have to put in antidotes.

    I'm not getting the pop-ups, (knock on wood) my browsers must be blocking them. Right about the time I started participating in the forum again I did notice a big increase in spam email though. Can't prove they skimmed the addresses from here, but it was quite a coincidence.

    Firefox + Adblock Plus. No popups. No Russian Bimbos.
    But I agree with you. You shouldn't be getting them if you are a paid member.

    I am using Firefox and have popups blocked and never get any. I am not using Adblock or any other addon, so it is just Firefox doing its thing. I DO get embedded ads sometimes, but I don't mind them if it helps pay the bills...

    Russian bimbos? I need to stop by more often.

    Perhaps the Russian bimbos would please you for a while, but consider: does Vladimir Putin look happy to you?!?

    I've been away for awhile. Who is running the site now?

    Well he certainly didn't look happy when Pussy Riot made fun of him!
