    Is that Betty Crocker ad annoying to anyone esle?

    Now i'm like most people here, i click on the ads once in a whiile, i know it's a fraction of a fraction of a cent, but it adds up after awhile

    ...but does anyone find that Betty Crocker annoying? I go to click on User CP and instead i'm being whisked away into cooking land...a far far cry from my Fort home.

    Anyone else feel this way?

    I hate that ad! I don't get taken anywhere, it comes to me. I get to see the cake frosted right in front of my face while I'm trying to read. I know it pays the bills. I just hate it.

    It makes me long for a piece with buttercream frosting.

    And yes, it's annoying. I thought we weren't supposed to get popups when green???

    It's a popup? I don't get anything cropping up lately. Could it be cos I use Mozilla Firefox as a browser?

    The Betty Crocker ad is the only one that doesn't get blocked for me. I figure one popup that pays the bills I can live with.

    It's the only one that I get, too... and it's definitely liveable.

    But I'm gaining 5lbs, thankyouverymuchJohn.

    It's a "pointroll", and I've declined the ad, but it takes a bit to go into effect, since the advertiser specifically chose me for inclusion in their promo. Sorry, folks.

    Thank you John. We do want to support the FORT , but that one was really annoying.
    I just want to hit UserCP for my subscriptions in a hurry - AND I'm on Atkins. Temptation doesn't need to stare me in the face 1000 times a day. (yeah, that's about right)
