Anyone getting those AOL ads that can get pass Google? Well, it looks like for some dumb reason after closing them I'm unable to click on "Watch Movie". Don't know if you have to let the pop up finish loading, cause I just close those quickly.

Yes I know Im responding to an old ass comment..... but I have pop up blocker as well yet the ads still showed up, it seems they have found a loophole in the system, well, thats AOL for you, always making simple activities a hassle. Fuck em' all !!!!!

its NOT a loophole and its NOT a popup... it was a FLASH BANNER
and FYI, computer loopholes are called "exploits" :P

I think that tom should have a 400X100 flash where the ads (not pupups) are displayed and have it tween to the left or right so it's "marques" ads from there. You'd have to do something with the non-interactive ads tho.
I wish there were no popups tho, some of them lead to spyware if you're not careful.

Unless the ads make the site unviewable for a god aweful amount of time, don't worry, I'll still be here!

I've seen the ad one or two times, and I'm using Firefox (the browser) I also have a pop up-blocking firewall. Whenever I get the ad, there's a little x in the top corner. Is it different for internet explorer or something?

We don't want ads like this on NG either - the ad company has been notified and it will be gone by the end of today.

i'm not sure if this counts but a pop up for AOL keeps appearing whenever i select a game or a toon.

just letting you know.

Those stupid AOL advertisements are still covering my screen every time i try to access a game or movie. It is really getting quite annoying. Do you by any chance know when they are supposed to be clearing off these stupid annoying advertisements?
P.S.great site

All interner ads are from hell.

I use Mozilla, and have been getting these ads for about a month. They cover up the description of the animation, often times they cover the watch this movie button, they are really obnoxious. I finally installed an IP blocker that blocks the IP addresses of most companies that supply internet advertising, and that solved the problem. Did the company doing this really think making the ads MORE obnoxious would make me pay more attention to them? Foolish.

Actually, I've been suspecting for some time that it's a netscape/mozilla issue, possibly a glitching "pop-up blocker countermeasure"... It detects the popup is blocked, it puts up a flash floater ad instead... But it doesn't behave right. Ah, well. They shot themselves in the foot. I don't see any ads now.

They're still coming up. Considering your ad company won't do anything over the weekend (as no company ever does), that's a full six days assuming they're gone on Monday. Your ad company needs a can of whoop-ass opening on them.
