TWoP and those bloody Invasion Ads
I did something I thought I'd never do - I downloaded adblocking software basically because those ads for that new ABC TV series "Invasion" at TWoP where fucking my computer over badly (and I have a pretty damn good computer AND I use Mozilla Firefox to boot).
I mean everytime I passed my mouse over the fucking ad it frooze up my brower to play the same damn thing, over and over and over again. I am not going to NOT watch that show on Principle now (heck the reason I never saw "The Core" was because of those horrible 'electrical superstorms' ads it did).
I actually do believe in advertising to support sites but:
A: TWoP isn't a favorite site of mine. I stick to the lower decks/basement forums to talk in a few shows well away from the mods. Occasionally popping into an odd thread. I don't like the site period, but it is the only damn place to talk about some of my favorite childhood shows.
B: I actually have been fiddling with the popup blocker program majorly so the only site effected will be TWoP and thus only it will be hurt in terms of revinue source (well this isn't counting any old site that still does popup ads or takeover invasion ads - those sites can go to Hades - but any site advertising a few resonable non-invasive ads to earn a few extra bucks to keep it running I have no issues with and I'll happily allow those ads to appear).
Anyway. First post. *waves*
