    Annoying ads

    PS:
    Who can KILL those background SPAM ADS that _always_ "pop-up" before logging on?
    Key Bank is mentioned in almost all of them.
    RSVP?

    adblock plus makes the web a lot faster and the pages cleaner.

    Thanks, but you do not understand completely; this site is the ONLY site i see a problem.
    One would think that indicates a problem "on your end" like a "camper" re-director.
    Note once i log in, it is gone; suspicious action as all heck.

    those are "value adding messages from sponsors", to use the parlance of our times. I don't see what's suspicious about ads. Stay logged in if you don't like them. I do think spamming lurkers looking for answers is why this site now has lower search visibility than SO (it didn't when i joined), but i don't make those kind of choices. As an adblock user, i don't even see the messages, and that's what i was recommending to anyone who wants their web to be faster, more private, and less cluttered.

    This site like any other is not free, but i see nothing hat indicates a sponsor nor do i see appeals for donations (like WikiPedia does at times).
    Even tho i have severely limited income,i do not mind donating on occasion to worthy causes.
    I would not mind "bribing" the Powers That Be (Forum owners?) if there was a reasonable guarantee that said "bribe" would convince them to sever that objectionable link.
