    I'm treating it like a game. I have to perfectly hit the x or I have to see the Ad. If I lose I watch the Ad and buy the product. If I win I get to read awesome post.

    It was bad during the game thread for me. Not sure if my experience was unique.

    Hi, David;

    Please note I've cc'd Ray on this email. Ray and Joachim are working on this. We implemented some new ad code and it's just taking a small amount of time to find a balance of how often they appear.

    Thanks,
    B

    I’ve got it. The force is strong with this ad.

    I was getting it on my phone. If it keeps up, I won't visit the site on my phone anymore.

    What, the ad placement or your avatar's hand placement?

    I’m getting it and it’s super annoying. However, It has made my wife happier this weekend due to the decreased amount of time I have spent here.

    I miss pop up video on MTV
    or was it VH-1
    I know it has nothing to do with the thread topic I just wanted to share. Also I like turtles

    Been using the DuckDuckGo browser and it has helped. Some pop ups sometimes asking if I want to visit another site, but much better than Chrome.

    It’s kind of annoying but I realize GC has to make money somehow. There’s ALOT of really good free content on here. I’m willing to put up with some of the things they gotta do to keep the lights on.

    Their music was okay but kind of difficult to listen to on a regular basis. Glad you like them though.

    I purposely dont use an adblocker on this sight so that GC can make money. These popups may make me change my mind.
