Every once in a while when I'm reading the boards I'll get this annoying AOL popup (which has a lot of little popups in it) and it takes a few seconds for it to finish so I can get rid of it. It wants me to participate in some survey.

Is this something I'm accidentally setting off by moving my cursor, or that I brought in from some other site, or should the blame be placed squarely on the Fool?

Is anyone else getting this?

I also got an AOH Pop-up using Firefox. I HATE the company, always have since I was originally required to use the ISP originally inorder to access The Motley Fool in August 1995. Busy signals, dropped connections, poor service, many, many billing errors that were NOT corrected by AOL -- even after certified mail letter to Steve Case the CEO of the Company.

I use Firefox but I never have any of these problems because I run it with the Adblock Plus add-on. Having effective ad blocking is the main reason I stay with Firefox.
