    Sorry, I'm not understanding at all what you are saying, or asking. It would be very helpful if you could better explain what you mean.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I think he's talking about all the flash ads on the page and the in the forums. I know for me, when my mouse moves over a word that is green colored with two underlines, I get a little window popping up right next to the word with advertising. Gets kind of old sometimes. Oh well.

    Ah... thanks for the explanation, Skittle.

    To the OP... I know the site needs income from advertisers to keep the site running, so that's probably why they are there.

    Hi, adarsh.ist! Skittle, you might like this too...

    If you install either No-Script or AdBlock then you won't see any of those ads, and the little pop-up windows will be a thing of the past.

    I think the OP is complaining about Microsoft ads; but hey if they are prepared to pay the bills

    Personally I surf with adblock plus on but for sites I find useful and good like LFO, I disable it as I am unsure if they the ppv revenue with it on...
