Do we have to endure pop-ups on the Peachparts site?

I was in the middle of perusing the site's threads when I was rudely interrupted by pop-ups from

http://mtn5.goole.ws/ac.php?bannerid=6&zoneid=4&target=_blank&withtext=&source=&timeout=0&ct0=

I don't really like it.

Are we going to have to endure this nonsense now?

Or is this a pop-up attack?

I have never had these happen to me before on the site and I don't like it.

Your opinions PLEASE.

FF with ABP seems to do the trick for me.

Please translate your abbreviations.

I updated my protection recently and it's damn good, so I don't know how this slipped past, if it did.

I've been "interneting" for 12 years and took me a while to figure out your acronyms.. not everyone knows them. How long have you been typing? If you can type at a slow 60 wpm (uh oh an acronym ) it shouldn't take you very long to write your words out

Don't knock him.
I've probably been interneting as long as anyone and I didn't know ABP.

IMHO () I've found using Safari on both my mac & HP have kept pop ups to a minimal, if not none on some days...

I had to use IE ( ) the other day, and almost tossed my computer and told it to STFU ( )

just sayin...

I started interneting a year after they brought in the FFMED. Know what that is?

I bet a buck not, which is my point: If I knew I wouldn't ask. And there's no one out there who knows everything.

You will discover this when someone younger than yourself asks you the same question you asked me.

I have never experienced a pop-up from this site....using Firefox and IE....maybe you have a malware infestation on your PC that happens to be bringing up pop-ups.

Try this for some of the more popular acronyms. But as they change everyday, you might be SOL

I have never seen or been notified of a pop-up from this site in the 2+ years I've been around here...

I would use a spyware removal tool such as "spybot search and destroy" to remove the infestation.
