Big Yellow square

Postby butterfly » Apr 01, 2009 12:10 pm

Is any one else getting this big yellow square popping up on your screen when reading posts

It says. JOIN THE FIGHT

Have to click on it get rid of it. No other way

Plus having to sign in every time since 2 weeks

I can't get that worm Mac can't

But I don't like that big yellow square popping up here in my face and taking up most of the screen

You don't need the X or to log out

I saw it pop up in a banner earlier so maybe the ad guys were playing around with it when we saw it in the middle of the screen...

That is the RUDEST ad I have come across. It pops up every time I click on the back button to read another post. It doesn't move until its 30 seconds are over. Very pushy! I refuse to click on it. :x

Getting it whenever log on to CG and scroll. Makes me see RED! Agree with ya, CC. Very ROOOD! BUT sure gets attention!

well after several tries I finally got in here

I never in my life ever viewed an ad so annoying and just down right rude

That darn thing prevented me from even getting on this sight

I couldn't click on a name or post the whole screen turned highted blue.

WE know it is cancer month but this ad is like it trying to force me to donate money which I do enough or buy a bulb

Until they get rid of it. I am gone

No need of such a rude thing to be popping in my face every time I want to come on the forums

SNAP!!

BF, calm thyself, our Pictou buddy. It's only for the first time you come on board, isn't it? Don't be hitting the high road due to such a trivial thing, in-your-face as it is, eh?

Yesterday I made Scotch broth for my Mom to take to a Red Hat potluck lunch. If it had failed, had a back-up Blue Noser chowder on back, very low, burner.

Jazz, is it less offensive en français? rire rire

I am going to move this thread to Feedback so that the IT guys can decide what to do with it. It's obviously an issue that is causing problems for some. I didn't see an X to close it either and as soon as I click on it I go to their website. I don't particularily like that.
