What in the name of zombie jesus is that godawful texas chainsaw massacre doing up there, every time i move my fucking mouse that annoying fucking pop-down thing pissing me off. For fuck sake, the people who come up with these things need to be shot. In their joints so they don't die, they just lose all their limbs. And remove their vocal chords, so they can't spawn more shitty ideas to piss people off. Is that your tactic nowadays you fucks, try to get people to buy your shit by seeing how much you can piss them off?

Yes, that pop-down is quite an anathema.

That one is about as annoying as the one that shows a little monster walking across the screen when I'm trying to check my goddamn email. It's bad enough that the entire right half of my fucking inbox is one giant goddamn ad. I don't need or want to see this shit when I'm trying to click on a fucking email subject title.

Hehe, Raz finally vents! , sorry. And, yeah, I hate that ad, it's annoying as all heck. I walked away from my computer the other night and the rugrat jumped onto my chair, moved the mouse over towards the ad, and the next thing I hear..."MOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMY, IT'S SCARY!!!"

I was thinking of making a post for that exact ad, but then I fell asleep. It pisses me off so much. Then if I rollover the Trailer part, and switch to another window, the trailer plays in the background, and I'm like...what the fuck is that?

Solution

i have the solution. if u are a windows user u should have a file called 'hosts' (it has no extension) in ur windows directory (NT/2000/XP users will find it in c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\ or c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\. linux, etc. users will have it elsewhere). open it with any word procceser and insert the following line into it and save

127.0.0.1 ar.atwola.com

this will block all ads that would normaly appear at the top of the page (u can do this with any website, simply start every entry with '127.0.0.1 ')

I haven't seen any of these ads...

Use Opera... It'll block all unwanted pop-ups... or if you just love surfing the slow way... use Crazy Browser... an IE shell with excellent pop-up blocking and a tabbed interface

Crazy Browser is completely free... and Opera is free, but ad-supported... you can buy it or ... you can get a code fairly easily if you wanna go that route... I didn't tell you that one

and then google for proxomitron

proxomitron effectivly filters out most all ads, and firebird just is the best browser out there, with popup bocking and skript blocking and the like.

that means no more damn ads. I hate ads, I hate them soo much. I stoped watching TV b/ of them.
