    I am sure the site needs advertisements which is annoying but do they have to take up 45% of the screen ?

    They want you to click the link. So the NSA can form a new database on who is we fight back participants. Of those participants how many of them are part of extreme group and have the potential to start civil unrest?

    Unlike most ads this one serves a very important purpose. After a little bit of trial and error I am now able to browse without going near the ad.

    Sorry all I see is "You are ignoring content by this member."

    You can stop replying to my threads now. I already told you I want nothing to do with your socks.

    This one isn't an ad, but rather a call to action. Cheryl has long been an advocate for freedom of speech, in a civil tone.

    Even after you minimize it to the bottom screen when you change pages it pops right back up again.
  7. I'll call it for sure. How long will it be here.

    If I send an email, will the ad go away?

    Agree, but I'm stubborn enough to not give in even though I agree with cause.

    It's very annoying --- please get rid of it. Cheryl--if this is your idea -- please reconsider---we don't need to be chasing pop up adds all the time.

    Over 6000 sites are displaying that banner today. It's the same group that organized the CISPA / SOPA protest.

    Since some of you say that the banner isn't functioning properly I'll take it down and add a notification instead. In the future if something is going wrong you'll get a faster response if you send me a message.
