    Prattvile, AL-Go Lions!
    Why am I getting a floating pop up add with a toilet paper coupon. I suspect it might be coming out of Tallacrappy.

    Mac user. Never had a singe one. Not trying to start a debate, truly, just reporting. Not a single one. Nor on iPhone.

    Seriously, I thought everyone ran Ad Block Plus by now. If not, you should...it is free and works perfectly.

    It works everywhere you surf too. Almost a completely ad free browsing experience.

    I’ve been considering getting a PC because I want the RTX 2080 graphics card, but this thread has given me pause.

    Nah...seriously. Ad Block and Chrome solves the problem.

    Yeah. It’s not the pop up here that I’m worried about, it’s that I haven’t even thought of pop ups in decades until this thread.

    Or until you use a company laptop and aren't allowed to download stuff like blockers......and your browsing experience here becomes miserable, while comparable UF sites do not deluge you with junk

    Ad Block is just a Chrome extension so it does not require a download.
