Nope,I think you said it all. It seems to be on about every site I go to.  Very annoying!

There are certain websites I visit where I have to make sure my "Arrow" DOES NOT touch the ad, or it will take over the entire page!Angry
A recent poll says all the bad boys and girls would prefer getting lumps of coal from Santa Claus instead of a Pay-TV subscription!

By now they actually have me convinced that I DID go to high school with "her" and that she DID marry "him," and yet I still don't care.
Let's try not to be boring, mkay?

Hooray, I can hook up with people I haven't cared about for 10 years! We can relive half remembered crap that doesn't matter.

Why thank you!

When it first came out It provided a decent service (before Facebook hit it big) including announcing my HS's 10 year reunion and getting me in contact with an old girlfriend. For one year I was even a "gold member". But each year they kept striping away feature after feature for it's free members making it useless. Then last year while doing a self-google I noticed that they allowed my private profile to be index on the net! So I dropped them for good.

I don't know how long this will last, but on some sites I found a way to get around getting "Greeted" by these Infernal Pop-Ups.Angry When I am on a site, and I want to go to a thread where these kinds of ads will get "stuck in your face" if you click the link, I will open the link in another tab. That way I get around these pesky Pop-Ups!
