Good job, I never saw any sign of any of them and I use MSN Explorer (don't laugh), though I heard of several people on Firefox who had the problem described.

Alt + F4 usually works on closing things.. .>_>

You need to fix the "audio by..." pages in the audio portal tom. when you applied the new layout, those boxes that seperate each submission magically dissapeared on me. The Audio Portal needs some attention! Something with 10000+ submissions doesn't deserve to be left alone! ( I have sontributed over 205 of them :) )

Sanity is grossly overrated and detrimental to the creative process.

Good news, Tom.

I had been running Safari, and hadn't noticed anything, but when the regs started complaining, I fired up Mozilla to see, and sure enough, huge popups from dewm appeared. Luckily, I was able to [X] out of them easily. I quickly returned to Safari, like the comforting home it is. Only the tiny AOL ad showed up on Safari, and only last night/this morning. Weird.

I never had those kinds of pop-ups... just the normal pop-ups. And I also have IE and no pop-up killer installed...

It was on a random code, you sometimes got it, sometimes you didn't. (And yes, you get them using IE)

there are alot of ads, and i think its really cheap that the ad pops out when i click watch the movie , so i click that ad instead of watch the movie, and you make money off me like that.

Those sons of bitches! How dare they do this. I hate those huge pop ups that disable your access to anything on the entire page.

I would think it's placed there right over the "Watch/Play This Movie/Game" button on purpose. It always gets clicked by acident. I guess it's a smart way to make money though. ^^; that was annoying though...hate to admit...

Annoying Ads BEWARE! For today you have made a powerful enemy. Today is the day you have called forth the Rage of Thomas Fulp, the English muffin of the Annoying Ad Termination Guild. Run, puny pop-ups run, your end is near.

I don't think many people take screenies of pop-up ads they would rather destroy.

That's what i think anyway...
