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?

Nancy

I also got an AOH Pop-up using Firefox.

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.
